What are dedicated servers?

A dedicated server is a type of remote server (one that is not located on your premises) that is exclusively dedicated to a single individual, organization or application. It is usually deployed, hosted and managed by a hosting, cloud or managed service provider. It is not shared with any other customers, services or applications unless multiple servers exist within that infrastructure. Typically, a dedicated server is rented on a monthly basis and provides a stated amount of memory, hard disk space, and bandwidth to a client as this typically saves router, internet connection, security system, and network administration costs.

Why choose dedicated hosting?

Most businesses require a dedicated server for the following reasons: Reliability: A dedicated server is a consistently more reliable option when high levels of traffic exist or are expected. In a dedicated server environment, you get maximum performance that is explicitly dedicated to your website, web app or platform. This allows your server to be far more stable. Security: A dedicated server has a superior level of security out of the box. You do not need to worry about things like a DDoS attacks trying to bring down your site because another site or client is located on the same machine. Resources: Because a dedicated server has more resources that are focused on your environment, its speed is consistently greater than that of other platforms. This increase in speed can be directly related to a positive increase in site rankings. Additionally, a dedicated server can be configured to have more raw computing power than a VPS can provide. Hardware: The servers hardware has regular maintenance as the host will replace aging parts, and also monitor performance. With a dedicated server, you can alter the way your server needs to run so that it performs with more flexibility and efficiently Also, there is no overhead for purchasing or maintaining equipment Customizable: A dedicated server is completely customizable to your needs. It offers more precise control and configurable options, which allows you to customize the components to meet your specific needs. Dedicated Hosting allows for:
  • Tailored Security
  • Complete Control over System Configurations
  • Installation of Custom Operating Systems
  • Resources Solely Dedicated to Your Web Applications
  • Quick Scale-Ups
  • One-Tenant Occupancy
  • Contract Free Hosting
  • Zero Infrastructure Costs
  • PCI and HIPAA Compliant
  • Hot Swappable Chassis
  • SSD Storage
  • Server Secure Security Configurations
Dedicated hosting not only gives peace of mind that you are working with bleeding-edge technology but also provides businesses the freedom to grow and flourish. When a company relies on your server’s uptime and performance why settle for anything less than the best?

Are all dedicated servers managed?

No, not all dedicated servers are managed. However, you can choose fully managed dedicated hosting, meaning that you’ll have a full-time provider who can manage all technical aspects for you. Our highly trained staff are ready to manage your hardware, web server and even offer “Beyond Scope” support for software that is not covered under our fully managed umbrella. Our servers come with multiple levels of management, that are suited to meet your specific needs. You can customize your management level during the setup process by selecting the server image type including multiple management panels like:
  • cPanel
  • Plesk
  • InterWorx
Should you wish to be more hands-on, you can choose either our Core Managed or Unmanaged options. We’re confident we’ve got the services you need to keep you covered!

What is the difference between VPS and dedicated server?

A VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. A dedicated server is a stand-alone, physical server that does not share resources. Because a VPS shares finite resources with other virtual instances on the parent, overuse of can lead to less than optimal performance for any resource-intensive applications, which is why dedicated servers often outperform VPS instances. VPS and dedicated servers share several overlapping qualities, but most importantly, the dedicated servers provide greater security, extra customization options, and higher availability and uptime. With more granular controls, you are free to customize hardware components like CPU, disk space and RAM as well as the use of a unique operating system. These allow dedicated servers increased performance for high traffic sites. When uptime and performance are critical to your business, dedicated servers are unrivaled in performance and value.

Can I upgrade my VPS to a dedicated server?

Absolutely! Because dedicated servers provide multiple advantages over VPS servers, it’s no wonder that customers often switch to a server that is more advantageous to them. We have a highly trained team committed to migrating VPS instances over to dedicated servers with minimal downtime in mind. Whether you are looking to have more room for customization or if you just have outgrown your VPS environment, our Migrations Team is here to make the transition as smooth as possible. For a detailed view of the migration process check out our article “What to Expect During a Site Migration”.

How many websites can I host on a dedicated server?

The number of websites you can host is only limited by the amount of resources you choose! The beauty of having a dedicated server is that you can upgrade your server or add on additional hardware when needed. Conveniently, your dedicated server has limitless abilities to host as many websites as you would like. Our experienced Solution Architects are ready to answer your questions and get you into a server that is perfect for your business. Contact our specialists 24/7 day or night to get the answers you need!

What is the setup fee?

We never charge a setup fee! As a benefit on select servers, you have the option to pay a small amount upfront that will lower your overall monthly charges for the life of your server. Ask your Hosting Advisor for details!
