Security – Clients using a dedicated platform will be able to deploy security measures, such as anti-virus and firewall configurations, that are more tailored to their own functions; whilst also avoiding the security vulnerabilities that can otherwise be introduced by the activities of neighbouring clients on shared hosting platforms. In addition, dedicated servers located within data centers can benefit from the physical security measures that such facilities often put in place, including, for example, biometric authentication, security guards and mantraps.

Line speed, billed on the 95th percentile, refers to the speed in which data flows from the server or device, measured every 5 minutes for the month, and dropping the top 5% of measurements that are highest, and basing the usage for the month on the next-highest measurement. This is similar to a median measurement, which can be thought of as a 50th percentile measurement (with 50% of measurements above, and 50% of measurements below), whereas this sets the cutoff at 95th percentile, with 5% of measurements above the value, and 95% of measurements below the value. This is also known as Burstable billing. Line speed is measured in bits per second (or kilobits per second, megabits per second or gigabits per second).
If you register a domain with Bluehost when signing up for a hosting account, there is a domain fee that is non-refundable. This not only covers our costs, but ensures that you won't lose your domain name. Regardless of the status of your hosting service, you'll be free to manage it, transfer it after any required lock periods, or simply point it elsewhere at your convenience. You retain ownership of your domain until the end of its registration period unless you elect to extend it. 
If a company needs a dedicated server, but doesn’t have the time or resources to manage a server themselves, dedicated hosting is a low-cost way to access the resources of a full server. A dedicated hosting provider handles the cost of building and maintaining server equipment, reducing the overhead for a business purchasing server space, and improving their return on investment.
Many dedicated server providers include a service level agreement based on network up-time. Some dedicated server hosting providers offer a 100% up-time guarantee on their network. By securing multiple vendors for connectivity and using redundant hardware, providers are able to guarantee higher up-times; usually between 99-100% up-time if they are a higher quality provider. One aspect of higher quality providers is they are most likely to be multi-homed across multiple quality up-link providers, which in turn, provides significant redundancy in the event one goes down in addition to potentially improved routes to destinations.
Lastly, what kind of support does the hosting provider give to the customer? Customer support should be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, especially if you are running an online business or a game that supports multiple users. You will want a hosting provider that makes it easy to get in touch should something go wrong or you want to upgrade before something does go wrong.
Dedicated servers are all about what you want to do. Instead of sharing a server through shared hosting, all of the space is dedicated to what you are going to build. Dedicated server space is sold by hosting providers for various rates that can range from $45 to $250 plus. Mostly this depends on the size of the server, but some hosting providers will throw in a few extra things to entice you to sign up.
You'll also want to consider how long you'll need dedicated web hosting. If it's a short-term project—say, less than a month or two—you'll typically receive a refund should you cancel your hosting within 60 days. Some companies offer 30-day money-back guarantees, while others offer 90-day money-back guarantees. Once again, it's beneficial to do your homework.
At InMotion Hosting, we provide top-notch hosting and are rated #1 for our service and support by many independent web hosting review companies. We are so confident in our service that we offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with any portion of our service, we will refund your hosting charges, no questions asked!

Migrating your sites with cPanel is fast and easy. Our support articles can easily walk you through a manual process if you prefer to do that yourself. But we also understand that migrating your content between hosts can be stressful for any developer or business. All Dedicated Servers come with FREE Launch Assist, which includes 2-4 hours of time that our System Admins can use to transfer your content.

Known as a "Redundant Array of Independent Disks," this method combines several hard disk drives into one unit, combating data redundancy and improving performance. Featuring fault tolerance (what enables a system to continue operating even if it fails) and a higher capacity/volume, data gets distributed in “RAID levels,” which is dependent on the specific level of required redundancy and performance. Learn more about RAID Technology.


Every Dedicated Server comes preloaded with APF. APF is a well known and respected software firewall that utilizes the built in Linux routing system (iptables). The firewall will be configured to prevent access to all ports but ones necessary for servicing the site. Certain services, like SSH, are blocked by default to help prevent common attacks. During the setup process we can add your IP addresses to allow access to whichever services you deem fit.

Oh, and let's not forget what else you get for paying a little less, with most game hosting providers - abysmal service, avoidance of the truth and attempts to shift blame when confronted with performance issues while still taking in money, then refusing refunds when all's said and done and people learn their lesson, and cancel their service with you.

Ok, buddy, are you having an aneurism? This thread wasn't made to promote anyone or anything - it was made to dispel misleading bullcrap from shitty, unscrupulous GSPs and try and encourage more people getting a dedicated box, after the constant pain we regularly see when yet another poor sap gets crap performance with no refund after cancellation of service from a GSP in the Squad server host community. Time and again we see the same complaints from people, about the same companies that prey on people with little technical know-how that just want to run a game server.

Starts with a brief interview to assess your requirements and determine which server or upgrades would optimize your workload. In this situation we recommend at least one or two Elite Dedicated Servers depending on the number of customers you anticipate receiving upon launch. A single server could perform the double duty of hosting your site (front-end) and hosting your client’s sites/email. In a two-server configuration the workloads could be separated into two separate servers giving more resources to each and providing better performance for your website and your clients’ sites. Next we’ll help you set up WHMCS to bill and provision hosting services for your customers’ websites. To provide a safe location to store your data in the event of a disaster, we’ll assist you in creating a backup solution that can include the storage provider of your choice (Amazon S3, Google Drive, etc.) or by storing the backups on an affordable server focused on large storage capacity to keep your data in-house and under your control. As your success grows, it’s safe to expect a larger user-base on your web/email service and a greater number of visitors on your site. This is a great problem to have and it inevitably requires more server resources. We’ll be here to provide expertise on improving your servers’ performance with software optimizations, server hardware upgrades, or even additional servers if you require a lot more room to grow.

With dedicated servers, you want a lot of storage and power if you are building an enterprise website. Otherwise, you may not need as much storage. There are also differences between processors. With single processor servers, you will not spend as much, but if you are purchasing a server with multi-core such as an Intel Xeon processor, then you will likely spend to have that additional power.

Our 100%-company-owned dedicated servers are configured with the demanding user in mind. Even our lowest-end server is capable of hosting several large game servers, websites, or other services that would cost significantly more if purchased conventionally, and all dedicated servers are based on the industry-leading performance of INAP bandwidth, ensuring the lowest possible latencies.
A dedicated server allows a client the flexibility of customizing the server to the clients unique needs for CPU, RAM, disk space and software. With shared hosting, a customer is limited to the applications, software and operating environment already loaded on the server. They may either offer software a client doesn’t need or lack things that they do.
Bandwidth refers to the data transfer rate or the amount of data that can be carried from one point to another in a given time period (usually a second) and is often represented in bits (of data) per second (bit/s). For example, visitors to your server, web site, or applications utilize bandwidth *Third – Total Transfer (measured in bytes transferred)
