For our continuing series of reviews on dedicated hosting plans priced lower than $100 a month, we’re going to take a look at SectorLink’s Managed Value Server. This plan starts at just $79.99 a month and includes many features that would be much more costly with other dedicated hosting options.

You’ll get an 80 gig hard drive and 350 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is in line with dedicated plans at this price range. The server is an AMD Sempron 64 3000+ or better and features 512 megs of RAM. For your operating system, you’ll be limited to CentOS 4.2 Linux (Redhat) since the Windows platform is not available at this price. If you do prefer a Windows-based dedicated server, SectorLink has one priced at $199 per month.

An account control panel is provided, as well as 24/7 toll-free telephone and email support. A 30-day money back guarantee is offered and the current uptime guarantee is 100%. SectorLink promises to have your dedicated server set up within 1-5 business days, which is a little long since many hosts are now offering set-up within a few hours.

Your server will be able to stream Quicktime and Real Audio or Video files, and WAP, XML, Perl, Python, PHP, and SSI are included. You’ll also be able to install your own applications on this server, which is a nice feature. Telnet is available for remote administration as well as Webmin for all Unix based accounts.

If you need additional features, such as complete management of your server, more IP addresses, and full 24/7 monitoring, these are also included. Security Auditing services are provided free of cost to all of Sectorlink’s customers and you’ll also be able to enjoy Sectorlink Engineering Administrative Assistance At No Charge.

As dedicated hosting options go, this particular plan is very well priced and doesn’t scrimp on many features that are commonly only available as costly add-ons.
