    I was wondering if anyone used a CoreNetwork dedicated server, and if so, what do they think about it?

    I have the base Leeware server right now, and I'm not really impressed with the speeds or the HD space (but I'm only paying $20 a month, so what can I expect).

    I was thinking about switching to the base CoreNetwork server, only 5 dollars more a month and +60 more gigs of HD space. The only advantage I can see for Leeware is that the bandwith is unmetered and CN has a 1000gig limit...but as of right now I doubt I could exceed that with Leeware. And I heard that there is a setup fee with that model, if so, does anyone know how much it is?

    Also, I know that currently CN is not taking new orders, so this change would be made whenever they start up again.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    leeware is all about being lucky to be set up at the right machine. If they set you up at a machine where most of the people use it as website hosts, you will get great speeds, but if you get in on one with BitTorrent freaks...you know what happens

    Not quite. IIRC, Leeware's network topology involves all traffic going out over the same WAN link. Sure, you might get luckier with CPU load, but WAN speed is the same across everything at leeware.

    yeah, but doesn't each server have it's own port switch with it's own limits in which you have to work?

    CoreNetwork are dedicated servers right? So are the speeds better?

    yes, you're looking at dedis at the moment, they don't have VPS, for the speeds you will need to check out what the give you, but genrally, you get what it says you get, if it says 100/100 Mbit, that will be your speed, because that's the speed your server is connected to the internet at, with Leeware, you just use part of the server that they have, and other people use it as well, so the limit they talk about is the limit for all of the people using the server together

    I see. I was also thinking about one of these (Hosting-IE), but I'm not sure if it would work for a server
