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.
Once you have the hardware, your next big decision will be how to configure and manage the server. Although many dedicated plans give customers root access to fine-tune the details, most users opt for a hosting control panel, or a graphical interface that enables administrators to perform complex tasks with just a few clicks of the mouse. We’ve written the ultimate guide to comparing the various options, but the general rule of thumb is to use cPanel for Linux machines and Plesk for Windows accounts.

We do offer hardware customizations on existing Dedicated servers but it is recommended you add them on at the initial purchase as any hardware changes once the server is active would result in downtime for your server. The cost varies depending on the upgrades. Contact our Sales team for prices. Hardware configuration options differ depending on data center location.

The first time the server is run, it should create a folder named ShooterGame/Saved containing various configuration and save files. If the server has run at least once but hasn't created this folder, it may not have been able to create new folders and files there. Verify that the folder where the server is installed is readable and writable by the user account that actually runs the server. (For Windows servers, check the status of User Account Control)
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.

Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system. Ubuntu uses the “apt” package manager, which users of Debian Linux will be familiar with, and a huge library of pre-compiled packages (over 16,000). It is very easy to install, update and remove software in your Ubuntu system. Ubuntu is Open Source software and the Ubuntu operating system is free of cost. In practical use, it is perfect for the person that wants the stability but does not require the commercial support and cost that commercial products offer.
