I’ve rented virtual private servers. So going the dedicated server route is new to me. I really didn’t know what host to pick for my first choice, but once I Google searched “dedicated servers” Cloud South was one of the top search results. I couldn’t be happier with them right now. Their response time to tickets are usually one to two hours, which the tickets are actually sent to people who know what they’re doing.
Server technology wise seems to be Dell branded. I’m not really sure which hardware brand is the best for servers, but my dell server loads everything in good response time. I’ll update later to confirm I’m still having a good experience with Clouth South.
