Just checked dedicated Windows servers between $5-$20. HostSearch only comes up with one. There must be more than that, surely?

Yes, there is indeed a reason why you do not see dedicated servers (especially Windows) at this price. That is because they are pure scams!

The Windows liscence itself cost the host most of that price direct from Microsoft with the SPLA (Service Provider Liscence Agreement)!

The general public really need to be made aware of the scams and potential issues involved with such low price temporary providers.

Do the math folks and you will see it just does not work out. How can a host offer dedicated under $30 (or even $99) per month? Consider the cost of a truly reliable network, high quality bandwidth, a reliable web server, software, and all supporting networking equipment and servers, plus advertising, staff, etc. and it just does not work out financially for the company.

Best Wishes for a .Net Success!
