|Dedicated Server FAQ|
What are the advantages of a dedicated server?
|Although a dedicated server is more expensive than a shared hosting account, it provides several significant benefits. You can host potentially hundreds of websites with a dedicated server; this is especially advantageous to professionals like Web designers who can host their clients without having to pay additional monthly charges for each website. If you have a very large website, a dedicated server offers huge storage and bandwidth capabilities; all of the server's resources are allocated entirely to your application, enabling you to offer features and service levels that go beyond the standard power capabilities of a shared hosting account.|
Who handles system administration for the server?
|You are responsible for server administration. Plesk 7 Reloaded control panels are included standard on all dedicated servers, and can handle most server administration tasks through an easy-to-use Web-based interface. Certified support technicians are available for advanced tasks at reasonable hourly rates.|
Will I be able to install my own software?
|Yes, you will have full command-line access to the server and can compile and install your own software.|
What happens if I exceed my allotted monthly data transfer?
|Additional data transfer is $2 per GB, with volume discounts available.|
Can you install additional RAM or hard disks in the server?
|Yes. Contact us for details.|
How long does it take to get set up?
|Set up typically takes 24-48 hours, and is subject to availability.|
