Dedicated servers in China

Dedicated servers in China

Hi guys,

My budget is around 300 USD/month. What is the best option I can get?

I need a dedicated server in China, or has a good connection to Mainland China. The server also needs to have good connection to France/US.

Thanks.

    My understanding is that you need some sort of license for every website hosted within China.

    You could either go for something West Coast US with good connectivity to China and US or something in Russia/Ukraine/Turkey with good connectivity to EU and China.

    China - > CN2 Shenzheng -> France/US (50~100ms),

    HongKong -> France/US (50~80ms),

    China - > HongKong (40~120MS)

    Hi, I only need it to set up some sort of reverse proxy.

    Not an expert. Just sharing my (very) limited knowledge on the matter.

    I know @Onapp_Terry does CDN there, which technically is 'sort of reverse proxy' and an ICP license is required to use this PoP - maybe Terry can recommend someone ?

    We utilize Habangnet for our Chinese capacity. You will need an ICP license, which you can obtain through Habangnet. It is much easier if you're located within China, but it can still be obtained by foreigners. Otherwise, it is relatively basic to obtain, assuming you do not violate any of the policies in place by the Chinese authorities.

  • If the user-facing end point of any resolvable domain locates with in mainland China, you need to have an ICP license for it. On link level requests with an unlicensed domain in header are not allowed to be successful, and this is enforced by your hosting provider on orders from the "relevant organs".

  • @OnApp_Terry omg I checked out Habangnet, and see their servers in China and Hong Kong only have 5 - 10 Mbps bandwidth. I need at least 100Mbps, how much budget do you think I need to prepare?

    A lot. China is expensive

    $300 /month can't get you that much, and anything in China will be crap for USA/EU bandwidth. I may be bias in saying this, but generally speaking, HK is your best bet.

    What exactly are you looking for?

    $300 /month can get something pretty reasonable, but it depends if hardware or network is more important to you.

    We do hosting in HK with decent connectivity to China, Europe and USA. $300 can get you a relatively high end server with pretty low amount of bandwidth (to China), or a pretty low end server with a decent amount of bandwidth (to China). For USA/EU, the price can be pretty cheap.

    So question is what are you hardware and transfer requirements?

    comXyz said: I need at least 100Mbps, how much budget do you think I need to prepare?

    Is that 100Mbit guaranteed/dedicated? If yes, what % is for China?

    I assume you don't need a dedicated 100Mbit link, because even if you had no Direct China traffic, the $300 budget would hard to meet.

    If you have a $300 budget only for bandwidth (not including the cost of the server, IPs or anything else not strictly bandwidth related) then you would at best get around 2-3Mbit of China Telecom, 20Mbit bandwidth from a carrier that has direct China routes (HGC/PCCW/Pacnet etc), or 60-100Mbit for a budget carrier that does not include China bandwidth (HE.net/Cogent/Telstra).

    So if you need a server as well, it would cost more. Unless it was a very low end server.

    Looks like it's a rent-to-own dedicated server rather than colocation.

    PM me if you would like to apply for Chase Freedom/Freedom Unlimited/Sapphire Preferred cards; I will pay you $50 for each successful application via my referral.

  • $300.. wow so much money you could buy a whole rack for that price in China.

    You probably could but I wouldn't expect any bandwidth or power at that price considering how expensive China is.

    Don't buy your service from a company that speaks english. That is where the real premium comes in.
