Discount Dedicated Servers

When you are ready to sign up for a discount priced dedicated server be sure you know what you are getting before you pay.  It's natural to want to spend as little as possible for your dedicated server, but the lowest cost server may not be the best server for you. In today's marketplace it is not uncommon to see dedicated servers for under $100 per month. PingPipe's is currently offering a Celeron D server starting at just $89. When you see a provider offering a dedicated server for under $75/month you should take a close look at the hardware configuration. Often providers  will re-rent old servers  until they can no longer be repaired, rather than stay current with their hardware. If you are considering renting a dedicated server that costs between $50 to $75/month there's a very good chance that it has been in use for over 4 years,  it might have many components that are "living on borrowed time". It's also going to have a less powerful processor than what is available at a higher price point. Low price does not mean high value. Check the hardware configuration to see that the processor is powerful enough for any applications you will be running. Remember that time is money - spending a bit more to get current hardware can save you money in the long term.  If your site (or your client's site) is not available due to an avoidable hardware failure  the short term savings of a few dollars a month will be poor compensation for your lost traffic and customers.

Regional domain names

Finding a unique domain name is getting more and more difficult.  When making a choice, often people find that "all the good ones are taken". While this might be the case for the "mainstream" extensions, a great alternative is to check the regional extension for the market you are targeting.  Check your favorite search engine  search engine for a registrar - there's a good chance your domain will be available. Some countries have this requirement that you have to have a presence there (like .dk for Germany, or .ca for Canada), but a lot don't (like .tv - which seems to be getting more popular, and isn't restricted to TV shows as some people think - its the top level domain  for the islands of Tuvalu). Having a domain name with the country-specific extension of the country you are targeting for your business will help with your branding in the local market. If you'd like to register one to use on your dedicated server or shared hosting solution contact the PingPipe sales team for assistance with the registration process.
