A dedicated server is referenced as a bare-metal server. These servers are meant to be designed with different scenarios in mind. They are built with dedicated hardware that handles large allocations of resources for CPU, RAM and Disk space. Dedicated servers can support large traffic, intensive applications and other various related tasks.
Dedicated servers are capable of being extensively customized to a clients needs for CPU, RAM, disk space and bandwidth for any scenario. This gives you a wide control compared to other hosting solutions. As such, they can always be upgraded allow for better hardware which increases your overall performance. In comparison to other hosting services (shared, reseller) you are not as limited in specific packages – you have the full server at your disposal. If you are looking to support a large application or you have expected growth then a dedicated server is definitely a better choice.
Virtual servers are limited by the host-node that they exist on and in turn, their resources can only go so high before a limit is reached. While virtual does scale well, it is limited by the availability of resources on the host-node. On a host-node there are several virtual servers at the same time, so while your package may have set resources allocated you may sometimes experience issues although rare.
When using a Dedicated server, your resources are yours and yours alone. There is no sharing of resources such as what occurs on a virtual server. Dedicated servers can be constantly upgraded to larger allocations compared to a virtual server which allows for them continue improving.
Dedicated servers are hardened by default: DDoS protection is included standard, and free. In addition, we include firewall, rDNS setup and pre-configure common services and sensitive ports to be secured.
For $12 per month, CloudLinux can be installed as your base operating system. It'll give amazing granularity of control resources, ideal if you're using cPanel and want each account to have strictly controlled resources, fully isolated from one another.
Kernel updates can come frequently and cause downtime - unless you have KernelCare. The beauty of this $2.95 per month add-on is that it makes kernel updates as live patches, eliminating the need for server reboots and downtime. This is one slick bit of software and one that I would never want to be without where any business is depending on being available online 24x7.
While it has been around for ages, we've grown up with WHMCS as the only billing option for those times when we're setting up sub-accounts with billing on our servers (making each server its own hosting company in a box). However, Blesta is now on the scene and giving WHMCS a run for its money. We can't say which you'll love most, but you now have a choice and can get either installed on your dedicated server hosting.
DDoS protection is included standard, and free. In addition, we include firewall, rDNS setup and preconfigure common services and sensitive ports to be secured. Want even more? Check out our selection of Comodo cWatch security software that goes way beyond the basics.
Put LiteSpeed on your server for a start. Then add one of our 3 flavors of LiteMage which is designed to take your Magento online ecommerce installation into hyperspace. The performance gains are simply outrageous - we can't recommend this highly enough - it's that much of a game changing performance addition.
We start you off with 8 IP's which is enough to get most companies started. However, if you need more, we make them available at the time of ordering, in blocks of 8, for just $1 per additional IP address.
We offer a number of flexible backup system options starting with 100GB of storage at $10/month (discounted for longer terms), then in other size increments such as 250GB, 500GB, 750GB or 1TB. This isn't some cheap and cheerful storage where you wonder if the files are really there or could be restored, but rather high availability, ultra high-speed, mission critical storage that you can can't on for your backups.
You can prepay for a longer term, instead of just month to month. Signing up for a 1-year term can save you hundreds of dollars each year.
You can even become an affiliate and refer others to us. Some of our affiliates make thousands of dollars each month AND get their hosting free, because they refer customers our direction.
With any dedicated server we have the capacity for using 1 GBPS Ports. For just $15 a month, we're able to upgrade your network port so that you go from 100mbit to 1gbit speeds, just like that - no problem.
RAM is available in 8GB blocks, and typically is charged at $15 per 8GB of additional RAM.
Our default configuration is to use an SSD drive for loading the operating system files. However, you can get substantially larger storage amounts by specifying SATA instead. Larger drives are available for an extra $40 per month for additional 256GB blocks of SSD.
High end dedicated servers have hardware RAID available, though all plans can make use of software RAID with the right combinations of drives. All dedicated servers can get additional drives, RAID and other customizations - just speak to the sale team and they'll sort things out perfectly!
