About a decade ago, someone running a hosting company offered me a dedicated server at cost.
A few years later, some other company acquired them, and bumped my price up a bit.
Last night, that server went down, and despite 3 "no info" responses many hours later, I still have no clue what's going on.

Looking at alternatives, it seems like the (reasonably-priced) hosting world is stuck in 2012? Kinda surprised there's no real upgrades on the market...

Any tips?

Update: Server seems to be back online as of ~4 hours ago.

However, it hasn't been fully rebooted in years, so I'm not sure I got everything back online 100%.

Please let me know if you see anything that appears to be missing/malfunctioning.

@lukedashjr Hosting is the absolute worst

What about Rackspace? A little pricey for VPS and above but they have stability afaik

@2140data Their website doesn't seem to suggest they even offer dedicated servers

@lukedashjr Still might not be what you are looking for... but I do have several client websites hosted with them and have had no real stability issues...

Support still isn't great but NO host has great customer service imo, just a bunch of Lv1 phone techs with no real ability to handle any issues...

Stay away from GoDaddy, Bluehost, LiquidWeb, or any of that stuff though!

@lukedashjr i have been pretty happy with my ovh / kimsufi bare-metal server. I also use Vultr for several VPS but the kimsufi machine is reasonably priced and i run a bitcoin node there (as well as two self-hosted at home)
