Just an FYI...
I recently got a new Dedicated Server from 1&1 (not affiliated, just a customer)... was a great price and awesome specs. It had 32 gig of ram, quad-core cpu at 3.8 ghz, and hardware RAID mirror with two 2 TB hdds. It was a Debian 9 minimal setup for just $99/month.
The most interesting things were:
Overall I like the server, seems fast, works well, helpful and friendly tech support, good online docs.
Does anyone know of a better deal???
