I'm interested in renting a *Windows* dedicated server (I don't know how to manage Linux :( ). GoDaddy offers:

OS: Windows 2008 R2 64-Bit

CPU: Intel

Would Windows Azure or Amazon be a good choice? I'm wanting to host a website. I want ASP .NET, PHP, and MySQL (or MS SQL).

Avoid godaddy.. note that whole sopa and pipa drama and also the lack of decent support and the elephant thing...

For dedicated I'm partners with inetu and they are hippa and pci cert hosting so really secure. I can set u up with a really good one that's beyond those specs and they'll work w u to even cut the price down. They custom build all servers and services.

They do windows hosting as well.

They also have cloud w the same lvl of sec.as their dedicated servers. It's powered by Vmware!!!

Have you tried eBay per chance? I have gotten some good hosting through them before VPS wise, but quickly outgrew the offerings, but then again, I didn't shop around like I do now. :)

Also, http://www.webhostingtalk.com will get you in on some good reviews of hosting providers,

And out of curiosity, what is the reason you want to host a site on dedicated? Is it a heavy resource hog or can it be hosted on a VPS (Think of it as a dedicated server, but virtualized so you don't have to pay for the hardware rental), or even shared hosting?

As you asked for "the best dedicated server host", that would be Rackspace by a mile. Very expensive though. If you want affordable and good, Media Temple. Avoid GoDaddy like the plague.

One option would be Rackspace Cloud - you can start off relatively cheaply and build up resources (and therefore cost) as the site expands. Starts at about 4c per hour for Winodows I believe, so about.

A very basic dedicated server host but when I used them they responded always very quickly and were very helpful. It is self managed though so your responsible for fixing any software related issues. Low as 24.95 for one and up.

I'm a pretty big fan of Singlehop.

We have 4 servers hosted with them in their Chicago(1) data center. They've always been reliable, and barring a **** up with regards to a down time notification (they sent it 5 times, revised it, sent out a cancellation, sent a new one, then someone senior stepped in and sorted it all out), we haven't had any issues in the 5 years we've been with them.

Their pricing is good, their uptime has been nigh on perfect and their data center staff are great.

Certainly worth a look.

Rackspace are highly overrated and overpriced for what you get. They'd only be decent if you know absolutely nothing about running a server and need help daily and if that's the case you should pay someone else to look after the server

Im currently a hetzner customer, there prices are unmatched for there bid servers - though they are and unmanaged service, so you only get fault(data centre issues/hardware issues) support and absolutely 0 help with the server software wise so unless you are confident you can maintain it yourself look elsewhere!

that said i dont need there support so the low prices make me happy!

What you using it for? Personally I recommend OVH on experience. But as above, I've only had experience with Linux.

http://www.kimsufi.co.uk are excellent value. OVH's budget range! The servers start at
