O.P. how much (UK)
I have been wondering this for a while now,
how much (roughly) would it cost to buy a cheap, small server in the UK?
i would like to host my own sites and i dont have many (4 - 1 is a forum) but i will make more and would like to have space for htat, but i still dont think id need much space on it.

anyone on the forums have a good one they could sell or anything?
i just want to know for a cheap one at a small cost.
thanks
if you have links could you please post them too :)

it must be avaliable to the UK

RE: how much (UK)
what about using you own pc as a small webserver

http://www.no-ip.com that will give you a domain that redirects to your IP, requires a client to update your IP stored on that site, client can be found on that site

and then you could get a free webserver (Apache, Abyss to name a few)

You would'nt need a server for a small website and forum, you would'nt even need a reseller account just buy some hosting :P

yeh, that's why i said buy, getting a server it is rip off.
i use dreamhost but you dont need that much space :P

how about a hosting harachy:

small website thingbob e.g freewebs.com
some friends hosts you
you buy some hosting and get an admin panel etc
you own a reseller account
you own a server
you own a hosting company and and the leetest webhosting dude in the world :P

because free hosting is crappy and unreliable wheras paid hosting is a lot more reliable and if something goes wrong, there will be someone on the other end to help you.
