Dedicated server hosting FAQs.

  • What is a dedicated server?

    A dedicated server provides you with optimal performance for all your applications because it allows your owner to have exclusive access to it and its resources. You have full control by tailoring it to fit your business, change configurations of the server, add new software and even add a higher level of security if needed.
  • How does Dedicated Server Hosting work?

    When we lease you a dedicated server (although we lease you the server, it’s all yours to manage) it’s custom-configured to your application, e.g., website, web hosting, database, gaming and video streaming. And it can be more than one – for even better performance capabilities. If that means you’re a bigger (or rapidly growing) business, that’s all the more appealing to go with dedicated server hosting.
  • Who should buy Dedicated Server Hosting?

    If you’re looking for the most power and control over your hosting environment, dedicated server hosting is for you. And, it’s also recommended that you have advanced server administrative skills to best manage your dedicated server.
  • What type of website should not use Dedicated Server Hosting?

    A dedicated server can run any type of website. However, unless the site is mission-critical with very high traffic (or using high intensive resource applications), dedicated server hosting will provide more power, but may not be necessary. Other solutions like shared hosting, business hosting or a VPS may be better suited for less resource-intensive needs.
  • Will I be able to manage Dedicated Server Hosting through a web-based control panel?

    Yes, you can install a control panel with selected OS versions. We offer easy-to-use control panels like cPanel/WHM or Plesk Obsidian Webhost Edition (includes WordPress toolkit) available on Linux CentOS.
  • Can I upgrade my VPS hosting account to a dedicated server?

    Yes. If you currently have a VPS hosting account with us, you can upgrade to our dedicated hosting at any time by ordering a new server. For fully managed customers, we’ll migrate your data from your current account to your new server. We also offer paid migrations for those who don’t want to migrate their data manually.
  • Will there be any downtime upgrading my VPS to Dedicated Server Hosting?

    Yes, because the upgrade includes a new server purchase. Although the average time for us to provision your new server will likely be a few minutes, it may take up to 24 hours or more. But, if you need your hosting right away, call us at (480) 463-8824 and we'll do our best to speed things up.
  • Does your Dedicated Server Hosting solution offer HDD or SSD NVMe options?

    Depending on your requirements, you may choose one of two disk types: HDD and SSD NVMe. HDDs are traditional spinning disks, which provide the highest storage capacities – however, while HDDs offer extremely high capacities, they are not the fastest options.

    For customers with a high demand on read-/write performance, we now offer SSD NVMe. SSDs are Solid State drives, which are much faster than HDDs by nature because they don’t have any moving parts. To increase performance even further, we offer NVMe SSDs, which use the NVMe interface specification for PCI Express-based solid drives. NVMe drives are not affected by the bottlenecks of the ATA interface – delivering up to 4X better IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) than the fastest SAS option available.
  • What is RAID and do you offer RAID with your dedicated servers?

    Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is a means for storing data on multiple hard disks, then linking the disks so that the operating system on your server views them as a single entity. Yes, we provide RAID-1 with all of our dedicated server hosting plans.
  • How soon will I get my Dedicated Server Hosting?

    Although the average time for us to provision your account will likely be within minutes, it may take up to 24 hours or more. But, if you need your hosting right away, call us at (480) 463-8824 and we'll do our best to speed things up.
  • What is PCI compliance?

    The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS or PCI for short) designates security standards to protect cardholders’ credit card data. That means, entities that store, process or transmit credit card information are expected to be compliant to the standards in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
  • How can I accept credit cards online?

    Our hosting services are a great place to setup your online presence and product catalog. You can then work with a third-party provider to process payments on your behalf to keep credit cards off your server. If you would like to accept payments directly on your server, we offer PCI-certified products like our Managed WordPress Ecommerce Hosting and the GoDaddy Online Store. Whichever path you choose, make sure to be informed of additional requirements to keep your business PCI compliant.
  • What are the additional requirements I should know about?

    We recommend you work with your payment provider (e.g., PayPal Checkout, Square Online Checkout and Stripe Checkout) to understand any additional requirements for which you are responsible. If you’re using one of our PCI-certified products, we have a simplified checklist for you here.
