Looking fro Datacenter in Hong Kong
Who can tell me some Datacenters in HongKong.
08-02-2005, 11:09 AM #2Corptex.comGuest
Contact me by email if you want further information; I don't have the information on hand. I have a partner in China (I live in the USA) and we run a China hosting company. We've looked for a good datacenter in Hong Hong, but the datacenters seem to all be strictly for co-location, and the only server companies out of Hong Kong I've seen are very expensive and don't provide the proper hardware or bandwidth connections. My partner will know more than I about this.
I can have my partner provide a list some datacenters and general telecoms. It is also possible that we can work something out together, depending on your needs, since I serve the China market. I've been at an excellent managed datacenter for about 6 months, after being at 5 unmanaged datacenters which each resulted in disasters (the last being Managed.com, who unplugged my server for a spam complaint, and it took TWO WEEKS for them to get my server back online - no matter how many polite emails I sent them! I had a server management company, but they could do nothing either, since they couldn't actually physically plug my server back in.).
I can tell you that it is simply not worth having a cheap, unmanaged server if you wish to keep your clients your work so hard to gain.
I was serving the China market from Managed.com, but, even if their servers were free, it wouldn't be worth it. My managed datacenter made some network changes and I now have very acceptable speeds to China from a surprising USA location. I doubt the speeds to China from my facility are as good as the speeds from Hong Kong, however. You can check ou my primary website http://www.corptex.com
So just last week, Managed.com (which is a deceiving name, beause their servers are completely unmanaged and their service is horrible) finally plugged my server back in and I have just finished tansferring all my Chinese clients to my primary managed server facility. Now, I am working on revising my company websites and putting them back online, too.
From my 3 years hosting experience, and from experience with 6 different datacenters, I can tell you that the datacenter you choose will have the biggest impact on your business. In the last year, I lost almost all my customers twice, due to having servers at cheaper, unmanaged datacenters other than my primary, fully-managed datacenter I'm at now. I was serving the China market from CalPOP, out or California, USA. I was only there for about 6 months, but my server went down twice for periods up to an entire week! One week downtime from a datacenter is completely unacceptable; don't they know you will lose all your customers? What I know now, is that they could have gotten my server back online in 10 minutes. They just didn't know how. My server management company (Fast Server Management) could do nothing even though they knew what the problem was, because the datacenter was too disorganized to be able to cooperate with them. The owner of my server management company said that it was pointless having a server at CalPOP, because I was only losing all my customers. He strongly suggested several good datacenters. I switched datacenters - to the one he owns - and have not had a problem since.
CalPOP - server down twice for one week each time, with many episodes of my server being down for a day or so. These downtimes cost me most of my clients.
Managed.com - my second month with them and they unplug my server because of a spam complaint. A datacenter is NOT supposed to do that; they are supposed to inform you of the complaint and give you a reasonable time to eliminate the problem before they take such drastic action as unplugging your server. Plus, it is inconceivable that it took them TWO ENTIRE WEEKS to plug my server bcak in, even after I repeatedly emailed them - and all their departments - begging them to plug my server in so I could find the spamming account and eliminate it from my server. I literally begged them, telling them that I had lost half my customers already. Still they did nothing. They charged me $10 to plug my server in. I have a handful of customers left.
The datacenter I'm at is excellent, and my server has had no downtime since I've been with them ... about 6 months. The only problems I've had is that I messed up some of my DNS settings when I moved my hosting companies to them and I have to fix the DNS so my company websites are available. I had a spam complaint against my server and they did the exact correct thing; they informed me of the complaint so that I could take the appropriate action to stop the spamming by terminating that account. They would never simply unplug my server. They know that my server must be kept running if I am to stay in business and keep my server with them
But, if operating out of Hong Kong is essential for your business, my partner can perhaps provide you with information that will be helpful.

Equinix doesn't offer direct dedicated server leasing. I called them around 6 months ago and established that. I asked if they could provide a list of dedicated server resellers within their facility, but they wouldn't.
I suppose you'd have to do some legwork to try and find server facilities operating out of their DC.
As I mentioned, my partner in China knows various hosting company owners in China, and knows of some other companies as well, some of which I believe do operate out of Hong Kong and who offer dedicated servers. I don't know for certain the details, nor if they operate out of Equinix or not.
You can contact him directly yourself if you wish:
or you can contact me with specifics and I'll see if he has some ideas.

Yes, it's possible to get one dedicated server at Equinix thru providers that are based there, like ServerCentral, Gowebman, Steadfast Networks,and few others.

Sorry to hear about managed.com.
I was thinking about going with them. But I prob. will not after hearing that.
Thanks, Hope you get a good datacenter

I have; CoastInc.com.
Fully-managed servers are the way to go ... if you think your business is of greater value than the server you're leasing
9 months and no downtime, no server problems ... and counting. Ahhhhhhh
