If you search for renting an already racked server I recommend to you
Just don't be irritated by the name :-) They also have physical
dedicated server for a nice price.

Link: https://clients.viralvps.com/cart.php?gid=10

In general: For 100 British Pounds excluding VAT you get
CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2603 (4C/4T @1,8 GHz)
RAM: 16 GB
Storage: 120 GB SATA3 SSD
1 GBit/s Switchport
20 TB monthly traffic included
5 IPv4 addresses
/64 IPv6-Subnet

Everything stored in a 19" Supermicro case. IPMI with chassis intrustion
detectio. The webinterface of the IPMI is only available via OpenVPN.

I also have one of these and I'm running multiple stuff and my tor exit
relay on such a machine. ViralVPS has some racks in the Severius
Datacenter in the Netherlands.
I recommend this hoster because of the good internet connectivity. If
you really need 24/7 1 GBit/s you'll get that there without any
complaints. Of course you should plan in some more money for the overage
Another great benefit is that you can design your harddrives as you
want. No need for RAIDs or kind of that stuff.

Another thing I want to mention is the support :-) Normally the response
time is below 30 minutes.

BTW: If this was too much advertisement I want to apologize.
