dedicated servers

Dedicated server hosting provides a physical Internet server dedicated for your exclusive use - providing the highest in reliability, security and flexibility.

FreeBSD dedicated servers

Our main operating system of choice is FreeBSD and we can provide resiliant FreeBSD solutions on custom hardware.

We provide very flexibile solutions designed to meet your needs. We can provide a choice of either a base install of a FreeBSD system then hand-over to you for all ongoing management of the system; or a fully managed service where we can provide additional consulting services to keep your servers running.

Our managed service can include whatever components you need, such as operating system upgrades, port installations upgrades, as well as full configuration and management of specific services (e.g. web, email, ftp, proxy, etc).

We can also provide dedicated servers with most Linux operating systems installed if required, although we generally do not provide ongoing operating system and application management for Linux systems.

Dedicated server data center locations

We provide colocation services from a massive network of data centers spanning the world. Our dedicated server options can generally be deployed to any of our active colocation sites giving a vast choice of potential locations.

Each location has its own benefits and we can advise on the best locations for your specific needs and depending on your priorities. The types of variables you may wish to consider when deciding upon your colocation or dedicated server telehousing location include:

  • bandwidth cost
  • colocation real estate cost
  • electricity costs
  • backbone connectivity speeds
  • political stability
  • price
  • privacy and other legal framework issues related to the jurisdiction
  • proximity to your end users
  • need to be present in a particular region (e.g. for interconnection with local telephony services)

More information

For more information about our dedicated server offerings, please contact our sales team.

Our dedicated servers are custom-built to your exact requirements so pricing is ultimately determined by a number of factors but principally:

  • server hardware specifications you require
  • bandwidth requirements
  • data center location
  • physical size of the server and its power needs (which will affect the ongoing colocation costs)
