If you’re looking for a budget priced dedicated solution, the hosting plans at EV1 Servers may just have something for you. For this review, we’re going to take a look at their Value Plan to see just what it has to offer for you.
This dedicated server comes with a 60 gig hard drive and you’ll be able to select the control panel of your choice. If you select the FreeBSD panel it is just $99 a month, but if you prefer CPanel, this brings the monthly hosting charge up to $119. Seeing that many hosts charge an additional $25 per month for CPanel, this is a reasonable price. Given the popularity of CPanel and its ease of use, it is well worth the additional monthly charge.
1000 gigs of monthly bandwidth are available with this plan, which should be useful for most large sites, even if they stream rich media files. This is an impressive amount of bandwidth for the overall monthly cost and if this is an area that you are specifically targeting while looking for a new host, you might want to give EV1 a second look.
The server for this plan is a 1.3 GHZ Intel Celeron. If you’re looking for a little more power, you may want to consider some of EV1’s higher priced plans. For most sites however, this server should pack enough power to keep your pages loading quickly. If you have a problem with the actual server itself, you’ll be able to submit a support ticket or if you know what may be malfunctioning, you can schedule a time for a replacement part to be installed.
If you are looking for a little more functionality on this plan, there are several available upgrades that include extra RAM, a second hard drive and much more. Each upgrade may have a set-up fee and an extra monthly fee will apply. However, you should be able to customize your server to your exact needs through the use of these add-ons.Related Posts:
