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.
For optimum performance all of our enterprise level SAN storage servers utilize state of the art SSD drives and memory caching technology, backed up by redundant RAID 10 (best performance) topology. All of our servers are highly available, and equipped with 100% redundant components! Unlike some of our competitors we never use cheap, unreliable, or non-enterprise hard drives.
Managed hosting will also typically include 24/7 customer support. This is important, because when you’re running your own server, you’re not just paying for cloud computing, but for the physical hardware that stores your web projects. So, if something should go wrong with your server, your data isn’t relocated to another server as it is in cloud hosting environments.
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.
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.

The typical installation of CentOS as performed in this tutorial will be based on the CentOS 7 DVD ISO image. You can burn the image to a DVD or copy it to a bootable USB drive. The installation covers the process of installing CentOS 7 on UEFI based machine. The same installation procedure can be successfully applied on old BIOS motherboards or on UEFI systems with Legacy Mode or CSM (Compatibility Support Module) option enabled.

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.
This is the ultimate guide how to build, setup and config CentOS-based unmanaged web server on VPS or Dedicated servers. Very complete tutorials for newbie. Going back to my vision with this blog: to help newbies with no knowledge at all how to build a working live server to host a production website in an unmanaged server without having to use Control Panel software like WHM/cPanel, Kloxo, and so on. I posted an index page of all my tutorials regarding Ubuntu server building, so I gonna make this page as an index of all basic tutorials to build server running OS.
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.
We provide IP addresses free of charge, but on an as-needed basis. ARIN rules require actual usage of an IP address so you must submit the domain name associated with any additional IP addresses. Additional IP addresses above the included IPs are available - please call our sales staff for pricing depending on number of IPs required. Limitations apply and this is no guarantee of availability.

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.
As your company grows, it demands that you move to a more secure, more stable environment with the enterprise-level features you need to deliver large-scale websites and lightweight web apps.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux, also known as RHEL, is a Linux distribution developed for the commercial market, including mainframes. The first version of RHEL bearing the Red Hat name was originally marketed as "Red Hat Linux Advanced Server," but in 2003 the product was rebranded to Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS, or RHEL AS. At that time two additional variants were added, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Edge Server (RHEL ES) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (RHEL WS).
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.

These updates allow for increased control over the dissemination of resources in virtualized environments, greater flexibility in cloud server deployment, added administrative control and security, improved storage capabilities through the utilization of iSCSI, as well as accelerated I/O and packet steering to improve network throughput by as much as 30 percent, Red Hat announced with the release of RHEL 6.2.
