That flexibility in supporting customers is mirrored in Liquid Web’s dedicated server plans. In addition to eight single- and dual-core processor configurations, the company’s Solutions Architects will work with customers to design a custom environment tailored to their website or application’s needs. Liquid Web offers Plesk in the fully managed Windows dedicated servers.
Our network’s lightning-quick, punchy response to almost anywhere is ensured by InterNAP’s Flow Control Platform technology. The InterNAP Flow Control Platform (InterNAP FCP) monitors all of our 10-gigabit carrier connections for latency, jitter, packet loss, BGP blackouts and more, for each destination network. If there is a better path available than the current path, then a route change is made and the better path is used to reach that specific destination network. The selected route used for each communication will be the fastest of any of our direct connectivity to Level 3 Communications, XO Communications, Cogent, American Internet Services and others.
You can save a nice chunk of money if you sign up for a year or more of dedicated hosting at a time. For example, you can rent a GoDaddy dedicated server for $129 per month, but if you commit to a 12-month contract, the price drops to $79.99 per month. Chances are, if you're serious enough about your site that you think it needs a dedicated host, you're probably planning for it to be up for a year. Of course, that's where the money-back guarantees come in, and some sites definitely offer more than others in that regard, so do your research. All our web-hosting reviews cover these guarantees.
With our custom in-house Shared Storage device, you can add a near infinite amount of storage to your server. While your server has 1TB of local storage, you can choose to expand this by adding space instantly to your server on our Shared Storage Device. This will be instantly attached to your server as a disk, at which point you can format it and mount it. You can choose to buy anywhere from 50GB to 500GB of storage at a time.
Recently, we've added more formal uptime monitoring to our review process, and the results show that most Web hosts do an excellent job of keeping sites up and running. If they don't, they suffer for it in our scoring. Even if they get everything else right, sites with uptime problems aren't eligible for high scores. All services suffer ups and downs, sometimes for reasons beyond their control. Those sites that fail to address the problem are penalized accordingly.
After you’ve made the above settings to your machine motherboard UEFI/BIOS, place the DVD ISO image of CentOS 7.4 or the bootable USB flash stick in the appropriate motherboard drive. Then reboot or power-on the machine. Hit the appropriate bootable key from the keyboard and instruct the BIOS or UEFI software to boot the machine from the appropriate DVD or USB drive. The CentOS 7 bootable ISO image should load and it will present you the first installation image on your monitor screen. Select Install CentOS 7 from that menu and hit the Enter key to start the installation process, as illustrated in the following image.
Managing your server can be as simple as tying your shoe or as complex as you'd like it or need it to be. Our managed servers provide free cPanel Control Panel access, a tried-and-true method to manage your website. Our Unmanaged solutions offer root access to your server, giving you the most powerful customization options available for administrators. Even better, if you're upgrading from a shared hosting plan with cPanel, a dedicated server with cPanel will not feel at all foreign to you. That enables you to spend less time learning and more time doing.
