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.
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.

Mr. Lane Livingston, CEO of NetHosting, stated, “As the efficiency benefits offered in virtualized hosting environments receive greater publicity, the prospect of migration and other reservations may still deter some enterprises from switching over. But cutting-edge operating systems like Red Hat’s RHEL 6.2 are proving the reliability of innovative hosting options like the cloud in both security and overall stability, which is why Red Hat’s newest release is fully supported on our products.”
Due to the fact that they are more stable, and the fact that almost every major Linux Distribution has a special server edition, Linux Dedicated servers are very popular among web hosting companies. Linux Web Hosting servers are known for their capability of handling multiple user accounts at the same time without a problem, which is why they are used to power cloud web hosting accounts.
Additionally, you'll want a web hosting service that offers Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) if you plan to sell products. Here's why: An SSL connection encrypts the data that travels between your site and users' web browsers, thus safeguarding the transmission of purchasing information. You've probably seen a green padlock in your web browser's address bar while logging into your online bank account or making online purchases. It's a symbol of trust. Some companies include a free SSL certificate when you sign up for a hosting plan, while others charge close to $100. You can save some money by shopping around for the services that offer the cheapest SSL plans.
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.
Dedicated web servers are for those who want all the power to themselves without having to share any of it with other users and their customers. Dedicated hosting, as opposed to shared hosting, is a hosting solution that's all yours. In a shared hosting environment, you share a server's resources with other users with running on their own virtual servers and sharing the hardware resources. With a dedicated solution, you get your own Linux dedicated server with all of its resources to use as you please for your website. That means all the bandwidth, RAM, CPU, and data transfer are all yours. Essentially you're renting a complete server from us.
