In the past few years now, I have been using a dedicated server at Advanced Internet Technologies because it was cheaper than what I have seen over the years and why I chosen Advanced Internet Technologies over companies such as Digital Ocean or Linode. So let me explain what kind of system it has.
The dedicated server has 16GB of RAM, Intel E3-1230 with 4 x 3.30 GHz with 512GB SSD and 1TB Hard Drive to store backups using nextcloud for price of $73.50. I know in reality, I do not need a dedicated server and just setup a digital ocean VPS and pay like $20 for a decent VPS and does the same thing as I am now.
The reason why I am still keeping this dedicated server because of the price and basically you can’t beat it, cheapest one I can find and the resources, customer service is actually not bad whatsoever. I mainly use this dedicated for my main sites and a next cloud storage that I can store my stuff.
I also have two VPS with Digital Ocean as a DNS Cluster that will help me maintain if something goes sideways and the sites are still available.
