1. Surround yourself with native speakers and spend as much time as you can with them carrying on daily conversations. 2. Stop worrying about your accent or the fact that people won't always understand you.

-----


Do you guys know of any other alternatives? I'm curious what's available these days. I'm asking about dedicated server options.

-----


Shameless plug time! My own company, Uptano, is doing something kind of neat with dedicated servers. We're letting you rent dedicated hardware and then launch multiple virtual servers on them.

https://uptano.com

We're not trying to be the absolute cheapest, just trying to be the company we wished to exist.

-----


I've been keeping my eye on Uptano, they've come a long way since I played with the initial beta. I really like the idea of having a dedicated box and being able to allocate VMs within it.

-----


Very interesting.

Question: Do all my 8 VSs have to reside on the same host? If the host goes down, it will take all my VSs with it. Any way of getting the same number of VSs but distributed across hosts?

-----


If the hardware goes down, so do the servers (just like EC2), but they can be brought back up on new hardware rather quickly.

You can of course setup redundancy by creating multiple servers on different hardware nodes.

-----


I have never heard of an ISP limiting customers to running any number VPSs on a dedicated server.

-----


Heh. That's one way to look at it, I suppose.

Virtual servers on Uptano are managed via the web interface and each includes a public IP address. Most ISPs do limit IPs per server. Also, our limits are higher than pretty much anyone needs per server.

-----


Why do you limit IPv6 addresses? Just kidding! Yes, IPv4 addys are in short supply.

-----


Really cool. I've just put my email address in the newsletter. Hope to need your service soon.

-----


Hi, what is the benefit of your offerings vs installing openvz on a managed host?

-----


It's far easier to manage than doing it manually. We're also making it easier to do high level things with your servers that aren't trivial to do manually.

-----


Are you OpenVZ only? Can I deploy my own Xen VPS on it.

-----


OpenVZ for now, but Xen support is coming.

-----


Any timeline on that?

-----


Always hesitate to promise dates, but it's coming soon. Feel free to email me jake@uptano.com and I'll let you know when it's an option.

-----


http://www.hetzner.de/ are pretty good price/performance wise .

-----


Hetzner also offer a Dutch auction for servers: https://robot.your-server.de/order/market

-----


Another vote for Hetzner, really their pricing makes anything stateside seem almost extortionate. You have to ask yourself if the extra 250ms ping from the States is worth it though. Game servers are right out.

-----


Hetzner are awesome, especially if you want high specs. Had no problems with them so far, although most of my important stuff is still on Linode.

-----


I am interesting in 1) a provider with comparable features in Asia and 2) another with comparable price on the west coast of the United States. That is until OVH roll out their west coast data centre in the coming years.

BTW, I'm thinking of webnx's special deals as the best on the west coast. Competitive on the high end. No where near as cheap on the low end.

-----


This blog lists the latest cheap options available: http://www.lowendbox.com/

-----


I don't think I've ever seen a dedicated option on there.

-----


They post them from time to time, but you're right, they primarily list VPS hosting.

Been using DataShack lately: https://www.datashack.net/dedicated/

I pay roughly $78 a month for this: http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2012/09/28/NkHEVWXUAKwf4USF

French IT situation : a 4-cores, 8Gb RAM & RAID dedicated server for 30€/month.

OVH competes with Online (former Dédibox, by Iliad (Free)) and the prices goes low... http://online.net/fr/serveur-dedie

Welcome to France, IT paradise.

-----


Using PhoenixNAP.com/SecuredServers.com in Arizona for a few months now. Pretty stable so far for a sub-$100 dedicated with 2-drives/Software RAID-1 & 8GB of RAM.

Limestonenetworks is also good in Texas, but starter servers are over-$100 for a similar 2-drive/RAID-1/8GB RAM box.

-----


Although I've never tried them, there's http://www.server4you.com/root-server/ that is relatively good value for money, but still a little more expensive. I don't know how their support/reliability is.

I actually use OVH on some older Kimsufi plans. I'm kinda disappointed actually with these new plans as they got rid of the Core i5/i7 processors which were a bargain for the amount of CPU power you got for the money.

-----


Unlike OVH, server4you use nasty 5400rpm hard drives on their low end. I actually am waiting for someone to come out with a low end server with a small SSD drive. I need performance not storage.

-----


RAMnode has been pretty good for very fast mid-range SSD VPSes (watch their Twitter; they have 30% off specials all the time). SoftLayer also supports SSDs but they aren't low end, for the most part. I'm a happy customer of both but an employee/beneficiary of neither.

-----


Check ServerBear for better comparison/coupon/benchmark etc.

http://serverbear.com/9756/ramnode

RamNode best coupon actually offer 31% off all the time! I'm using LEB service extensively as I'm offering budget Managed WordPress Hosting.

http://kittysensei.com

Performance wise, RamNode is among the best LEB provider along with company like BuyVM, ServerDragon and Hostigation.

-----


If I'm going to considerably pay more, I am still better paying OVH more. I'm thinking of getting this bad boy: http://www.ovh.ie/dedicated_servers/eg_64g_ssd.xml

-----


Also in France, online.net has very similar offers. I have 3 "dedibox" online.net servers and I'm very happy with them. The uptime is great, and the bandwidth is astounding.

Love it!

-----


How about different colors of lines for from/to?

-----


Thanks for a great interview!

I've noticed that the link to Jeremy's twitter account is wrong on your website.

-----


Hey Jeremy! Thanks for releasing the new version!

-----


very cool. it would be nice to add categories or tags to clues. API would be nice too so maybe somebody else could create a mobile version :)

-----


it does have tagging!

-----


oh sorry somehow I missed them

-----


I play soccer twice a week :)
