Choosing a Dedicated Server Hosting solution may seem a bit intimidating and overwhelming. We understand! At A2 Hosting, we want to ease any worries or concerns you may have. We're here to help you select the perfect hosting solution for both your business and your site. Below are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions related to Dedicated Servers. Of course our 24/7/365 Guru Crew Support team is standing by if you have any other questions!
Dedicated Server Hosting is the ultimate in web hosting solutions. In short, dedicated hosting is a solution when you rent an entire physical server for your websites. You do not share this server with anyone so it can be completely configured to meet your specific need. Since all of the resources of the server are yours and you do not have to share them with any other users, you should experience enhanced website performance and stability.
The are a large number of advantages you will experience with Dedicated Server Hosting. Here are just a few of those main advantages:
Reliability - While shared hosting and other solutions are very reliable, you do not share resources with other users on a Dedicated Server. That means those resources are working exclusively towards keeping your site up and running. This is especially true during traffic spikes and other periods when you experience maximum visitor volume. Of course, at A2 Hosting, we back up your server with our 99.9% Uptime Commitment with reliability isn't a concern!
Performance - Again, you are not sharing resources with any other user so you get the added benefit of all your server's processing power ensuring your website runs at peak performance.
Configuration - With root access on our Core and Unmanaged Servers, you have complete control over how your server is configured. Go ahead and install custom software, configure specific server settings to your liking and get access to your server logs.
Security - You never have to worry about what other users or sites are doing on your server because you're the only one on your server! Best of all, A2 Hosting manages your security when you select our Core and Managed Server options! We'll take care of the latest security patches and updates!
Scalability - Choosing a Dedicated Server means you'll not only be able to plan for business and website growth, you'll be able to handle that growth with ease. Scalability means you'll experience a number of advantages like having the resources to add new software packages, the ability to handle additional website traffic, processing more orders and keeping up with database growth.
A Dedicated Server is an excellent hosting solution if you've outgrown Shared Hosting and on your way to needing more resources and more power than a VPS. Here are a few examples of when you should choose a Dedicated Server.
Absolutely! At A2 Hosting, one of our goals is to make user-friendly solutions that "just work"! Our Dedicated Hosting is no exception! That's because our Managed Servers feature the easy-to-use cPanel control panel. Use cPanel to easily manage your sites, databases, files, email and more within its intuitive interface. Of course your Managed server also includes our 100% worry-free HostGuard Management. Let our expert team take care of all the fine details including management of your hardware, network and core server software! That way you can focus on building and promoting your site.
Please note that our Unmanaged Dedicated Servers are designed for more experienced users. While you do have the option to addon cPanel, our unmanaged servers feature root access and should only be chosen by users who are comfortable working with command line.
At A2 Hosting, you get the choice of both Managed Dedicated Servers and Unmanaged Dedicated Servers. Which one is right for you?
A Managed Dedicated Server is the perfect environment if you're used to Shared Hosting or Managed VPS Hosting. That's because you get access to the cPanel control panel, but with the power and resources of a Dedicated Server. With this intuitive control panel, you can easily manage your website, databases, files, email and more within its graphical interface! A2 Hosting's Managed Servers also features HostGuard Management, providing you with a 100% worry-free hosting experience. You can rest assure that A2 Hosting's expert Guru Crew Support team will take care of your hardware, software and security. Our team will also make sure that your core software (PHP, MySQL, Apache etc.) is all up to date with the very best versions!
An Unmanaged Dedicated Server, on the other hand, is designed for more experienced users who are comfortable managing their sites with command line. Our Unmanaged Servers also offers root access allowing you to dig into your server and customize it with your perfect configuration.
With an interest in Dedicated Server Hosting, choosing a high performance Dedicated Server Hosting company should be a top priority. You are investing in your business. Make sure you invest wisely!
Your site's performance has a direct impact on your bottom line and your business' success. That's because most website visitors expect a site to load within 2-3 seconds. A mere one second delay in page load speed has a detrimental impact on a number of key statistics including your bounce rate, conversion rate, visitor satisfaction ratings and even your SEO rankings. Don't let a slow Dedicated Server Host ruin your chance at success. Choose A2 Hosting where it's "Our Speed, Your Success"!
At A2 Hosting, we choose the very best hardware, software and network for your site. Add this to the fact that our expert Guru Crew Support team uses our industry leading server configuration and your page load speeds will never be a concern!
Looking to really make your server fast? Choose our Turbo Boost servers! Our Turbo Servers use a speed-enhanced, drop-in replacement for Apache! They also feature faster and more efficient connections!
If you're going to use Turbo Boost servers, you should also consider our Turbo caching! Turbo caching Increases your page load speeds by storing the entire HTML contents of your pages in memory. That means your pages are served without having to run PHP, saving even more precious page load time!
It's important to make the right investment in a Dedicated Server host. After all, cheap prices more often than not will lead to cheap service. You can't afford to host on an unreliable server host to save a few bucks. You'll end up losing the few dollars you saved on downtime anyway! That doesn't mean you have to throw money away either! That's where A2 Hosting's fully customizable servers help!
We get it! Some sites and projects are more memory intensive, but need less disk space. Sometimes you need less RAM, but extra disk space. Don't get stuck paying for resources you won't use or don't need! Choose our fully customizable servers where you can choose your level of RAM and disk space!
Another way you can customize your server is by adding the award winning cPanel control panel to your account. While you can control your account via command line, cPanel offers user-friendly account control. cPanel makes it easy to manage your files, databases, email and more.
Mistakes happen. The last thing you want to have to worry about is accidentally deleting your crucial data. You won't have to be concerned about this when you add A2 Hosting's R1Soft Continuous Data (CDP) Backup solution to your server. R1Soft has got you covered in case of hardware failure or user error! R1Soft takes frequent and automatic snapshots of your individual files, websites and MySQL databases. If or when you need data recovery, just select from the available saved snapshot options within your user-friendly R1Soft admin panel. R1Soft even makes bare metal server recoveries possible.
