Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about dedicated server hosting.

What is a dedicated server?

A dedicated server provides you with the best level of performance and optimal performance for all your applications because it allows the owner to have exclusive access to it and its resources. You can exert full control by tailoring it to fit your business, change configurations of the server, add new software – and more so, add a higher level of security if needed.

How does dedicated server hosting work?

When we lease you a dedicated server (and although we lease you the server, it’s all yours to manage) the server is custom-configured to your application. E.g., website, web hosting, database, gaming, video streaming and more. 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 dedicate server.

What type of website should not use Dedicated Server?

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 have the option to choose the installation of a control panel with selected OS versions. We offer a variety of control panels like cPanel/WHM including free Installatron* for easy installation of hundreds of applications, Plesk Onyx including WordPress Toolkit and ISP config.

*Installatron is a one-click web application installer that provides the simplest way to instantly install and effortlessly manage top web applications.

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 will 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?

Not really. We want you up and running as soon as possible. So, our standard dedicated hosting server configurations can be set up in minutes. However, some server add-ons and custom configurations may require longer setup times.

Does your dedicated server 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 offer RAID-1 with all of our dedicated server hosting plans.

How do you monitor your data centers and servers?

Our GoDaddy team is on-site and available 24/7/365 to ensure our servers – and your sites – are running at peak performance.
