The servers at Bluehost start at $79.99/month and include 1TB of hard drive space, 16GB of RAM, and 15TB of data transfers per month. Bluehost will also setup the server for you and create custom configurations for an additional cost. Bluehost also throws in some website monitoring tools and easy-to-use applications so that you can set up what you need in very little time.
It is very rare for a customer to exceed normal usage while managing a website. Typically, customers only experience issues if they use their accounts for storage (for example large multimedia files) or file sharing. Our hosting services are not intended to support these activities, and in accordance with our Terms of Service your disk space and bandwidth usage must be integrated into the normal operation of a website. We offer various plans that better address high bandwidth and large storage requirements. Please contact us for details.

For plans or packages featuring unlimited websites, domains, or email accounts, we do not enforce any official limitations. Customers are able to utilize as many of these features as they wish. That said, these are of course not infinite resources and there are inherent maximums associated with the technology powering them. For example, while email account creation is unlimited, these rely on the file storage available on the account. Therefore customers need to be operating within the Terms of Service to ensure resources are available to fully enable email functionality. Customers operating within the Terms of Service have yet to come up against technical boundaries for email, domains, or websites.
But a company looking for more power and control may need a service provider who offers dedicated hosting. With dedicated hosting, a client rents a server from a dedicated hosting provider, and has exclusive use of that server’s resources. The provider works with the client to give them the CPU, RAM, and disk space that they need. The provider builds and maintains the server, eliminating a  business’ upfront cost of purchasing their own.
[QUOTE=Ywa;20370159]Can that be blamed on the server host? If you have a dedicated server, you're responsible to keep your software up-to-date and protect it. The company is only responsible for hardware faults.[/QUOTE] They don't pack a line firewall without hefty (£20/m + £150 setup costs) Though, I personally think the problem was Fizzadar having RD passwords in his email, which he used the same password for as the password he used when he registered to RoleNation.
CentOS is the most popular version of Linux for web servers. It is an open-source Linux distribution derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), but it is not affiliated with Red Hat, Inc. With its fast-growing base of users and community contributors, CentOS is constantly tested and updated to ensure that its users have a stable, secure and high-performance hosting environment.

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.


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.
One thing you will get is a free SSL certificate with each server. You can pick from RAM, RAID, CPU, and other storage configurations through the website. The pans go up to $429 for a high-end enterprise server. Configurations start with up to 2TB of disk space, 16GB of RAM, and 5TB of monthly data transfers. This is rather low compared to the unlimited plans or standard 15TB of monthly data transfers on other hosting provider plans.
If you are a business in need of a medium to enterprise-level website, then Bluehost is a great option with different packages for dedicated servers that match your budget. Bluehost provides a few features included with the price to make it a better option if you do not know how to set up a server or want to get through setup as quickly as possible.
With each Standard Dedicated Server purchase we provide you 2 free hours of our highest level of support from our Managed Hosting team. Commercial Class servers receive 4 hours. These hours can be used to fully transfer your websites to our servers. In order to make sure 2 hours is plenty of time for you, please speak with our sales representatives.

Starts with a brief interview to assess your software requirements and determine which server or upgrades would optimize your workload. In this case we recommend starting with 3 Elite Dedicated Servers – two front-end servers for better performance and failover between them with the third as a database server. We help you setup your CDN account (CloudFlare, Incapsula, etc.) to load balance the cluster and provide the best worldwide connection without costing you a fortune. As your business grows, we can add additional front-end servers for better performance and additional database servers for improved redundancy.

[QUOTE=brocko;20363312]You could buy an old server and colo. RapidSwitch has a nice deal for £36 per month. [url]http://www.rapidswitch.com/Colocation.aspx[/url][/QUOTE] For colocation, I wouldn't go with RapidSwitch unless you have serious money to burn. While they're a very good and very professional host, there's a few hidden costs which they don't exactly tell you about when you sign up. Have a look at killercreation.co.uk. The guy who runs that - Justin - is possibly the nicest person you could ever meet. They also do standard dedicated servers which are a little more expensive than RapidSwitch, but the attitude of the company outweighs that imo. Where RapidSwitch are extremely professional, KillerCreation are much more down to earth and friendly.

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.


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. 
Our Commercial Class and Standard Dedicated Server lineup are equipped with Xeon® processors. This ensures excellent performance and the reliable operation of your dedicated server. In addition, our Elite Dedicated Servers are equipped with the newest 4 Core / 8 Thread Intel® Xeon® CPUs. These servers take advantage of the newest optimizations from the latest generation of Xeon Processors to provide an affordable and efficient solution to handle even the most robust tasks.
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).
