We provide IP addresses free of charge, but on an as-needed basis. ARIN rules require actual usage of an IP address so you must submit the domain name associated with any additional IP addresses. Additional IP addresses above the included IPs are available - please call our sales staff for pricing depending on number of IPs required. Limitations apply and this is no guarantee of availability.
A dedicated server can be used for a variety of purposes: big data, machine learning, website and application hosting, backup and storage, infrastructure virtualization, server cluster, business applications (CRM, ERP) or online game hosting. This is why we offer several dedicated server series, each designed for specific needs. Our sales and technical teams can help you with your project and give you advice on choosing the right server.
In the Web hosting business, a dedicated server refers to the rental and exclusive use of a computer that includes a Web server, related software, and connection to the Internet, housed in the Web hosting company's premises. A dedicated server is usually needed for a Web site (or set of related company sites) that may develop a considerable amount of traffic - for example, a site that must handle up to 35 million hits a day. The server can usually be configured and operated remotely from the client company. Web hosting companies claim that the use of a dedicated server on their premises saves router, Internet connection, security system, and network administration costs.
A recent version of CentOS is included with every InMotion dedicated server plan. InMotion has utilized CentOS as its primary server operating system for over 10 years. As a result of this experience, our technical teams are experts in how CentOS functions. They use this know-how to optimize CentOS for peak performance and stability, and they are able to provide you with in-depth technical assistance should you need it.
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.
Providers often bill for dedicated servers on a fixed monthly price to include specific software packages. Over the years, software vendors realized the significant market opportunity to bundle their software with dedicated servers. They have since started introducing pricing models that allow dedicated hosting providers the ability to purchase and resell software based on reduced monthly fees.
The second bandwidth measurement is unmetered service where providers cap or control the “top line” speed for a server. Top line speed in unmetered bandwidth is the total Mbit/s allocated to the server and configured on the switch level. For example, if you purchase 10 Mbit/s unmetered bandwidth, the top line speed would be 10 Mbit/s. 10 Mbit/s would result in the provider controlling the speed transfers take place while providing the ability for the dedicated server owner to not be charged with bandwidth overages. Unmetered bandwidth services usually incur an additional charge.
