I am looking for a list of dedicated server providers under $20 for testing purposes, I would like to install hosting control panels or special scripts that needing to run on a dedicated server. Do you know or suggesting me some names?
Well there are providers like kimsufi or wholesale internet, however those servers are really low end, for under $20 my suggestion would be to go with a VPS which offers you root access, basically a self-managed or managed VPS with root access. That way u get a slice of server which has decent new, powerful and more reliable hardware, at a fraction of the cost. Keep in mind that old hardware is bound to failure.
would not use cheap old servers to run your clients data you get what you pay for and just asking for problems or outages recommend new tech from 2018 or later keep your clients happy also see if these providers offer server colocation for the price of $10 to $20 per month
@Maxoq The thread you have opened depreciates web hosting both as service and as industry at all. please do not take it personal, but such threads is nothing else but a result of reckless thinking. Certain things have certain price tags and any unrealistic expectations would result in frustrations. $20 does not pay for anything when it comes to dedicated physical server. Even the electricity costs for powering one could be higher than $20 on monthly basis.
