We are selling our new web based software soon. the 95% of data are will be national. I'm not sure which way we are going to do this.

1. Server Co-Location
2. Setup a server in our office. (There only a ADSL line in the office)

If we go with Server Co-Location, which provider will be suggested please? Price and service both sides will be considerd.

Thanks guys!

I may be a little biased here but Maxnet are pretty solid when it comes to Collocation, you pay for what you get so you have to calculate the risks and costs of downtime when selecting your provider.

Virtual Servers (real ones on Enterprise servers/storage etc)  could also be an option if you're not wanting to shell out on hardware upfront and would prefer to throw that little bit more cash into your business during the startup phase.

ADSL will be limited in the upload speed which will slow down people viewing the site/app so a hosted/colo/cloud system will defintely be the beter choice.

Thanks guys,
I'm looking at Hosting Direct and Data Center Ltd. at the moment. HD is quite close to our office. Not sure wich one is better or there are some other choices. Cheers,

You have more than those options. But really, whatever you do, if you are selling the service DO NOT RUN IT ON A DSL CONNECTION. IT IS NOT BUSINESS GRADE.

Alteratives include colocation (which means you have to invest in server hardware in a moment when you are starting a service and don't have much of that money coming in) or virtual private server (VPS), which is basically virtual machines hosted by some large companies (ICONZ, WhereIsMyServer, and others provide this).

I would start with deploying your service on a VPS until you have enough customers/load to cover the cost of physical servers and co-location.

Pick any provider but iServe (Orcon) - long story, trust me, save yourself the headaches.

Hello

Sorry, I've come in a bit late on the conversation but if you're interested in more options such as a dedicated server where the hardware is managed rather than your own hardware co-located, please drop me a private message and I'd be happy to give you some options for your requirements.
