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 both our Core Servers and 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.
Do you want the best of both of our Managed and Unmanaged options? You may want to consider our Core Server management option. Our Core Servers features offer all the features of our Managed Servers (cPanel, full management and more) complete with root access, as found with our Unmanaged Servers.
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!
“Being a small new customer and migrating our exiting site to our first dedicated server was daunting.

“I am a WordPress developer and I maintain my own dedicated server for my clients. I was in a major jam when my previous server provider stopped updating or patching my server.

“Moving to a shared hosting from a dedicated server, I had an old version (4.34) of stunnel, and apart from updating to 5.49 (the last 32 bit version), didn't know whether I had to generate and upload certificates, get changes to dovecot conf or whatever. Version 5 and on support openSSL. Turns out I didn't need to, and it was quite easy to do, to...” Read full review
“Great service, both billing and tech support. I'd read the reviews before moving from my dedicated server at another host to the A2 shared hosting account, and the reviews were right. 100% so far :-)”
“What a remarkable improvement from my previous provider of shared hosting. My web site uses a lot of PHP and MySQL. This caused dreadful performance in my previous shared hosting service, the one promoted by a former female race car driver. The performance of the A2 shared hosting is 80% that of a dedicated server in my own home. That is...” Read full review
“Very fast response and courteous team. Solution took only as much time as I took in making changes to recommended settings. I have renewed service for full year last time I renewed as previous support was also outstanding. There were no Support requirements for their error. A2hosting settings are little bit different, naturally, than other...” Read full review
“Just what I needed. If I could correct anything, it would be to clarify similar terms: customer portal (CP) is *not* control panel (CPanel) I use just un-often enough to have to refresh my memory.
