Why the bin?

 

Windows isn't exactly regarded as the best OS to use for a server.

I would recommend Linux or BSD. Basing your entire host OS on the fact that it needs to execute a bat file is ridiculous, what does this bat file do?

There is a sticky at the top of this board that covers recommended hosts.

"The BAT file runs the server"?

 

That's like saying the Batmobile drives Batman.

WebFusion should be good - Their entry Win 2k3 servers are ~£60 a month. I have a few (higher-end) Linux servers with their subsidiary DonHost, they're a little more expensive (I'm not sure why), but I can't fault their service.

The BAT file is the file that acts as my server that people connect to on there client, I need a place to store it.

But im asking for places to get a windows server not all this crap

No offense, but I seriously doubt you can create server software of any kind using just a windows batch file. What's more likely is that this file executes some binary, the server software.

 

Maybe if you were to give us a little more accurate info we would be able to give you more, and better advice. For example, why are you so positive you need a *dedicated* server? Perhaps a VPS would suffice? What kind of server software are we talking? Maybe it has a *nix version, it's multi-platform or there's a better alternative that'll run on Linux. Of course if you prefer Windows because you don't know how to manage a nix server, that is a good a reason as any, but Windows servers are usually slightly more expensive and you do say you are looking for cheap.
