    I have a few questions before ordering a seedbox.

    http://hosting-ie.com/content/view/15/48/

    I am thinking to order Dedic Raptor Pro Lin 585 for 68.
    So here it comes:

    -Can i reach with this server 10mB/s down/up?
    -Is it possible to share server with more people?
    -What means Raid optional?
    -Bandwidth is unlimited so this means I don't need to worry that i will go over the limit and that i would need to pay some extra money?
    -Do I get Windows Server 2003 for free?

    That would be all for now...

    -Can i reach with this server 10mB/s down/up? You should be able to...they said 100mbit but it is more than likely shared so it will be burstable to 100mbit....meaning you can acheive those speeds but dont expect them all the time.

    -Is it possible to share server with more people? Yes, give them their own account

    -What means Raid optional? You can add a 2nd HDD as a backup that mirrors the first or add more HDD

    -Bandwidth is unlimited so this means I don't need to worry that i will go over the limit and that i would need to pay some extra money? So they Say

    -Do I get Windows Server 2003 for free? Looks like


    btw, dont forget about those set up fees....

    Also Raid0 is additional HDD whereas Raid1 means backup HDD.
    So if you have 2x80 in RAID0 you have 160GB space, but if you have 2x80 in RAID1 you have only 80GB.
    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    But this servers are dedicated...

    What DV8type probably means is that you will have a full 100MBit port that you don't need to share like you do with a VPS, BUT you are not guaranteed any speeds either. It may just be the issue that offering unlimited traffic is something all of their customers find attractive and therefore take more than their network can handle. This in return means that depending on the popularity of Hosting-IE and the quality as well as bandwidth of their backbones, you will not get the full speed all of the time, if ever.

    I would generally take any unlimited traffic servers with a 100MBit connection with a grain of salt, though - especially at these conditions. You are not likely to reach the full 100MBit most of the time, but speeds up to 10, 20 or even 30 MBit/s should be acceptable for you.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Yes they are dedicated server but not necessarily the connection. Its more than likely a shared 100mbit connection. You should be good, im sure you will get real good speeds out of it still. Full on dedicated 100mbit connections are hundreds of $$ per month.

    So there can be more accounts on one seedbox? Yes, since you are thinking about Windows im assuming you can give every1 there own user ID and login, just like windows 2000, WinXP and Vista. Its your server so you can do what you'd like.

    So u say that they may lie? No i've just never had any experience with them. A lot of ISP/Servers say they are unlimited but throttle your connection when after you have reached a certain limit. After a certain point they will limit your speed to 50mbit or something bcuz it gets expensive for them to have a true unlimited plan. Most unlimited plans just mean that you dont have any worries about exceeding your Bandwidth and will not get any surprise charges. Btw, using a lot of bandwidth (ie 4+TB) will probably raise a flag with them and they might check for torrent/copyright issues. That is what happened with BoD a few months ago. Im not saying they will go that route since i dont have any experience with them.

    But I can also decide not to have RAID? I believe you said it was optional

    Full on dedicated 100mbit connections are hundreds of $$ per month.
    in USA it costs 1200 USD
    in Europe from 600 to 800 EURO per month
    With hosting-ie it costs 600

    I've ask them, Dedicated 100 mbit directly connected to Internet costs 600 per month

    Many-Many small hosting companies are based on single 100mbit and much more one single 10mbit )

    So u say that they may lie?
    So coming from here if you will use constantly all 100mbit I think they will shut you down or limit

    In a support mail I got a different answer. 100Mbps is shared by the physical servers, the entire userbase is aggregated into a GigE. I think that's the truth too, as 100MBit shared between so many users would be quite unbearable.
