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.
A: Each dedicated server is unmetered and connected on a 10Mbps port. This means that you can sustain 10Mbps up/down for as long as you need without incurring any extra charges, alternatively a 100Mbps port is available for an additional charge. If you decide that a 100Mbps port is the way to go you can either pre-purchase bandwidth at a commit of 20Mbps or above, or you may chose to just pay for what you utilize. Please keep in mind that all bandwidth is calculated within the 95% percentile saving you money!
Because CentOS is the free version of Redhat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), it does not come with any support by default, like you might expect from RHEL. That said, there are many third parties who are capable of supporting CentOS. Your hosting provider can certainly provide support for you, or if you need additional assistance, you can always contract with one of many third party management companies.

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.
In the next step, go to Software Selection menu. There, you will find a list of some predefined base environments for your system. You can choose to install a graphical desktop environment, such as Gnome, KDE Plasma or Creative Workstation, or you can choose to install a custom server installation, such as Web server, Compute Node, Virtualization host, Infrastructure server, Server with a graphical interface or File and Print Server.
Steadfast has over 20 years of experience with hosted Linux solutions, including managed Linux dedicated server hosting. We offer full support (with Steadfast Advantage included) for CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and CloudLinux. Additionally, we can install most any other distribution you want such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (we recommend CentOS instead), Gentoo, Fedora, SuSE, CoreOS (great for Docker or Kubernetes), or even custom Linux distributions.
For an additional monthly charge, you can also get dedicated personnel servicing your servers. You will have direct access to one of our engineer's email-pager address so that you can contact him anytime during the day. This allows you to be able to get almost real-time services for new user or email account creations, new virtual web hosting account setups, instant modifications to firewall policies and customized code-debugging and trouble shooting.
The first decision to make is whether you want a Linux or Windows operating system to run on your dedicated server. Most hosts give you a choice while some specialize in one or the other. Which one is right for you depends on what kind of languages or databases you plan on using. If you’re still unsure, we like to say there’s a 99.9% chance you should go with a Linux dedicated server.
