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.
Apart from the fact that it's freely distributed, Linux's functionality, adaptability and robustness, has made it the main alternative for proprietary Unix and Microsoft operating systems. IBM, Hewlett-Packard and other giants of the computing world have embraced Linux and support its ongoing development. More than a decade after its initial release, Linux is being adopted worldwide as a server platform primarily. Its use as a home and office desktop operating system is also on the rise. The operating system can also be incorporated directly into microchips in a process called "embedding" and is increasingly being used this way in appliances and devices.
Your LAMP stack is now complete and you can run any type of dynamic website/software application provided it works on the Apache, MariaDB and PHP environment. You might also need to install or enable additional PHP extensions and Apache modules depending on your web hosting needs. We hope this guide will be a great starting point for installation the most common software applications required to run your website.

The development of Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software collaboration: the underlying source code may be used, modified, and distributed—commercially or non-commercially—by anyone under licenses such as the GNU General Public License. Typically Linux is packaged in a format known as a Linux distribution for desktop and server use. Some popular mainstream Linux distributions include Debian (and its derivatives such as Ubuntu), Fedora and openSUSE. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, supporting utilities and libraries and usually a large amount of application software to fulfill the distribution's intended use.
Being open-source software, Linux dedicated server is the best solution for companies looking for reliable and robust dedicated servers at reasonable costs. The server is a fully-managed hosting solution devised to improve your business performance, accommodates increasing server needs, and supports multiple databases, such as SQL, PostgreSQL, and MySQL.

Repeat after me: There is no such thing as a free dedicated server — not one that can handle all the things that dedicated customers typically need their server to process, anyway. If you fall into one of the free dedicated hosting traps, you’re going to wind up so frustrated by the resource limitations and downtime issues, or your credit card is going to be charged out the you-know-what when the free trial expires in a week. Turn your attention to low-cost, high-quality options instead.

Throughout most of the 1990's, tech pundits, largely unaware of Linux's potential, dismissed it as a computer hobbyist project, unsuitable for the general public's computing needs. Through the efforts of developers of desktop management systems such as KDE and GNOME, office suite project OpenOffice.org and the Mozilla web browser project, to name only a few, there are now a wide range of applications that run on Linux and it can be used by anyone regardless of his/her knowledge of computers. Those curious to see the capabilities of Linux can download a live CD version called Knoppix . It comes with everything you might need to carry out day-to-day tasks on the computer and it needs no installation. It will run from a CD in a computer capable of booting from the CD drive. Those choosing to continue using Linux can find a variety of versions or "distributions" of Linux that are easy to install, configure and use. Information on these products is available in our distribution section and can be found by selecting the mainstream/general public category.
All our Dedicated Servers are monitored for availability (pinged every 5 minutes). In the event that your server goes down, you will be paged and/or e-mailed at the same time as our NOC. This web-based system can also give you uptime statistics and you can review historical monitoring data for your servers. We can also monitor network-based services such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SMTP, POP3, DNS, and others on your server for availability.

Table 2.1, “Hardware Requirements Based on Number of Entries” contains guidelines for the recommended size of the Directory Server database. They are based upon the number of entries that your organization requires. The values shown in the table assume that the entries in the LDIF file are approximately 100 bytes each and that only the recommended indices are configured (since indexing is resource-intensive).
InMotion's Dedicated Servers are now using Solid State Drives (SSDs), a type of hard drive that uses no mechanical parts and provides substantial performance upgrades from traditional spinning drives. Solid State Drives give you faster read/write speeds, can handle more disk requests and can push through significantly more data than a standard Hard Disk Drive (HDD).

Hosts like InMotion, for example, pack plenty of RAM, CPU power, storage, and allocated IP addresses into each dedicated server plan, and package pricing starts right around $80 a month. No, this is not the lowest price tag you’ll find in the hosting market, but remember, dedicated hosting is the expensive hosting niche. You’re not sharing any of your server’s compute power or storage or bandwidth with anyone else, so you’re the only one paying for it all.
When you’re choosing and setting up a dedicated server for the first time, one of the main decisions you’ll need to make is that of selecting an operating system for the server itself. In the world of dedicated hosting, there are essentially two options of operating system from which to choose: Windows and Linux. And while you may be more familiar with Windows as an operating system yourself, the truth remains that Linux servers can be a great option for many people in need of reliable and secure hosting.

Red Hat's documentation publication system recently went through an upgrade to enable speedier, more mobile-friendly content.

During this redesign, we invite your input on providing feedback on Red Hat documentation via the discussion platform.

FREE in WHM, AutoSSL is cPanel’s answer to the annoying problem of SSL renewals and installation. Some Certificate Authorities utilize short expiration dates on their certs (for security purposes it’s better to limit exposure if your key is compromised) requiring admins to frequently renew their certs manually to avoid a coverage lapse. You can use this tool to issue Domain Validated SSLs through Comodo at no additional charge. If you prefer a different type of SSL you can purchase a 3rd party SSL and install it directly or use our Launch Assist service and allow our System Admins to install it for you. Server Name Indication (SNI) is enabled by default to allow a single IP to support multiple SSLs.

As I reflect on today’s announcement, one can’t help to think about Kubernetes. Last month, I talked about some of the upstream CNCF projects we are involved in. Since then, we’ve continued engaging with the community upstream including the Kubernetes Service Catalog, where Microsoft employees are amongst the top committers, upstream managed/dedicated blob disk contributions and of course the Open Service Broker API. Working with the community and contributing upstream will continue being an important part of our relationship with Red Hat.

A Dedicated Server is a physical server that allows you to have exclusive access to its resources.

However, all customers need to be compliant with our Terms of Service. For eg., Your website should not utilize more than 25% server resources for a duration longer than 90 seconds. Also, the web hosting plan should not be used for file storage or sharing. While it is rare, we might have to suspend your account, if the resource usage is affecting the customers on the same server.

RAM and fast multi-core CPUs allow a system to do more simultaneously, for example serving more visitors on your site. Plan on increasing performance by optimizing with RAM-caching? – More RAM means getting a larger, super-fast cache for your server. Performance isn't the most important thing to consider – your server must not corrupt data. We only use ECC (Error Correction Code) RAM because it's designed to protect against data corruption by detecting and automatically correcting errors while data is written to the memory. In addition to error correction, our Commercial Class Servers use Registered ECC memory which allows our servers to reach extremely high RAM capacities to provide all the resources you need for your project.
Hello from Edson, Web Business Manager at cabosys.cv! To interact with Mochahost is always a pleasure! At the start of our business we were with another host and after less than 6 months we had to quit, due to many issues. Luckily we found Mocha. We were concerned about what would it be like, but we experienced something amazing: another level of Support (never had an issue to solve that took more than 24 h), modern tools, up-to-date servers, resources that brought our business plan to life. Now we feel like part of MochaHost. My colleagues and I want to say 'Thank you MochaHost for all these years!'. We are looking forward to many more years of business with such a reliable company.
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.

Dedicated hosting servers best server businesses or individuals with advanced IT needs or websites that receive high levels of traffic. A dedicated server can give your business the necessary flexibility and scalability to implement and manage software, applications, and configurations. If your website is getting high levels of traffic, a shared hosting plan is not going to suffice. Upgrading to a dedicated server gives you the ability to host as many websites and mailboxes as you want so you are never in need of disc space, bandwidth or software restrictions.

Dedicated servers sound pretty great, right? They are. That said, you should be aware of their relatively high prices. Setting up shop on a dedicated server will likely cost you more than $100 per month; shared servers, on the other hand, are far less expensive. The cheapest web hosting services will lease you space on the web for well under $10 per month. In addition, you'll need to handle firewalls and maintenance yourself unless you opt for a managed server, which costs even more.

A Cloud VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. As where a Dedicated Server is a stand-alone, physical server that does not share resources. As with fixed resources, scarcity can lead to less than optimal performance for the resource-intensive application, which is why Dedicated Servers often outperform VPS instances.
Even though Plesk is compatible with multiple operating systems, it’s most frequently paired with Windows hosting accounts. Plesk is generally cheaper than cPanel licenses, but the expenses of running Windows make the pair slightly harder to find. Both the Plesk and cPanel control panels are easy to operate. With familiar, simplistic layouts, site administrators can generally switch between the two platforms without much hassle.
