Dedicated Server Hosting FAQs

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.

  • You need hosting for a popular blog or you have a high traffic website
  • You run a revenue generating eCommerce website
  • You want to use resource intensive software
  • You have a media rich website with videos, images, podcasts or streaming music
  • Your website is running slowly with your current hosting solution, especially if you have already optimized your site to load quickly
  • You are getting resource usage warnings, like running out of disk space, with your current hosting solution
  • You don't want to be hosted on a server with other sites, particularly for security reasons

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.

At A2 Hosting, our solutions are fully scalable. That means our hosting services grow as your business and website grows and becomes more popular.

Many of our customers begin with our Shared Hosting solutions. This is a good option for users who are just launching their site and/or have smaller resource needs. With Shared Hosting, your site will be hosted on a server with other customers.

For users who need more power than a Shared Hosting account, but with the same ease of use, VPS Hosting is a popular option. Like Shared Hosting, virtual private server (VPS) Hosting customers are hosted on a server with other customers. However, with the use of virtualization, VPS Hosting customer accounts are partitioned into individual server environments. Unlike Shared Hosting, you do not share the RAM, CPU or disk space limits with other users. A VPS essentially behaves as a miniature Dedicated Server.

Dedicated Hosting provides the ultimate hosting environment. That's because your site, files, databases, software and more are all hosted on a single physical server exclusively for your use. Just like our other plans, A2 Hosting's Dedicated Server plans are also scalable. You can be hosted on a server with more resources and power as your site grows in popularity!

To really understand the difference between the three services, consider a large building used for housing purposes. With a shared hosting environment, a number of users live within the building. There are no rooms or partitions and each tenant shares resources. A VPS, on the other hand, uses the building like an apartment. Each user has their own space within the building. With dedicated hosting, each person gets their very own building to live in. They can divide up and use the building however they like, and do not have to share it or its resources with any other user.

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!

  • Turbo Servers feature a speed-enhanced, drop-in replacement for Apache that uses less memory and CPU

  • Turbo Cache Option - The entire HTML contents of your pages are stored by Turbo Cache and can be served without even running PHP, further increasing performance!

Customizable Dedicated Servers

We understand web sites, businesses and projects come in all shapes and sizes. Why should your server be "one size fits all" solution when you aren't a "one size fits all" business? At A2 Hosting we let you design your perfect server. Whether you want more RAM or storage, we've got you covered. With our ultra-fast and convenient server deployment, you should even have access to your server in 30-minutes or less. We bet you'll have a hard time even having a pizza delivered that quickly!

SSD Dedicated Server Hosting

Another way you can customize your server is to choose our solid state drive (SSD) servers. Sites hosted on SSD servers load up to 300% faster compared to traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). That's because SSDs use flash technology, similar to the tech used on smartphones!

On one hand, HDDs use spinning disks with a read/write head on a mechanical arm to record and access its data. On the other hand, SSDs do not have any moving parts, allowing for vastly improved read and write times. SSDs are also able to perform thousands of input/output operations every second compared to standard HDDs which are only able to perform hundreds per second. This is a key reason why sites hosted on SSDs load up to 300% faster compared to those on an HDD!

More Dedicated Server Advantages

Just like any solution, Dedicated Hosting features a number of advantages compared to other web hosting solutions. Here are a few of those advantages:

  • Smart Server Notifier

This exclusive tool is one of the key reasons why we can offer you a 100% worry-free solution. Our SmartSystem Notifier automatically, and more importantly, immediately contacts our support team if it discovers your sever experiencing a hardware or software issue. This means our team can correct that problem quickly, many times before you're even aware of it. The Smart System Notifier allows you to sleep soundly at 4 AM, not sitting up worried whether your business-critical site is up and running. The Smart System Notifier is a great tool for keeping our team alert, but if you're experiencing a server event like high load or you have a full filesystem, we'll automatically notify you too! That way you can quickly correct any issues as well.

  • Free Dedicated IP Address

Each of our Dedicated server plans include a free IP address. Dedicated IP addresses have a number of advantages including the ability to enable Anonymous FTP.

  • Scalable Servers

Being successful is a good thing, right? Our Dedicated Servers are completely scalable so you have room to grow as your business expands! When you outgrow your server, our team can quickly and easily upgrade you to a solution that is more suitable for your business' growing needs!

Buying vs Renting Dedicated Servers

When making the decision to rent dedicated servers from A2 Hosting or to buy a server, your main considerations are cost, timing and staffing. Below is a breakdown of these of those factors:

  • Rent A Dedicated Server Cost

At A2 Hosting, you rent a Dedicated for a low monthly price. This Dedicated Server rental price is one you can budget for each month. This is especially helpful in the case of any hardware failure, which can be difficult to budget for if you're buying servers. Additionally, there are no upfront or setup costs to rent a Dedicated Server from A2 Hosting. Just choose the configuration you want from our cart and get started! Your server will be available to you in a matter of minutes!

It can be difficult to estimate for and budget all of the costs associated with buying your own Dedicated Server and setting it up. First of all, you will need a lot of upfront money to buy your hardware, software and to set up your network. Secondly, and more importantly, you need to have money set aside at all times to cover any costs related to replacing hardware when it fails. It's not worse the hassle and the headaches. A2 Hosting are Dedicated Server experts. Let us do the heavy lifting for you!

  • Rent A Dedicated Server Time Frame

Each of the Dedicated Servers available at A2 Hosting are set up and ready for your site at this very moment! It couldn't be easier or more convenient to get started.

Do you want to buy a Dedicated Server? You will need to begin investigating the type of hardware you want to buy and wait for it to be shipped. That doesn't even include the time it will take for you to configure your server. That could take days or possibly weeks. Do you have that kind of time? What if you outgrow your Dedicated Server? Rent a Dedicated Server from A2 Hosting and it'll be ready for you in 30-minutes or less!

  • Rent A Dedicated Server Staffing

Rent your A2 Hosting Dedicated Server and you get the advantage of our expert team managing your hardware around the clock. Our Dedicated Servers are a worry-free solution! Do you really want to buy your own Dedicated Server when you'll have to hire a staff to configure your server, network and monitor it 24/7/365? We didn't think so either! Renting a Dedicated Server from A2 Hosting is the obvious solution!

What Is Dedicated Hosting Anyway?

All of these features may look impressive, but if you don't know what Dedicated Hosting is in the first place, these features probably don't matter much to you at all. When you purchase a Dedicated Server from A2 Hosting, you are getting all of the resources listed with the server plan of your choice. You do not share these resources with any other user or customer. The bandwidth, RAM and data transfer are for your use exclusively. With all of these resources at your disposal, you can expect your dedicated hosting service to be highly reliable as well offering the very best in performance.

Choosing Dedicated Server Hosting means you are essentially renting a server within our data center configured specifically for your needs. Dedicated Web Hosting is designed for the most intensive hosting needs including successful business sites, multimedia sites and sites that use the web's most demanding software solutions. In short, it's perfect for hosting your high traffic and high load web site.
