How is a Dedicated Server different from DV Levels 1-6?

Both services are hosted on identical powerful, reliable, high-performance hardware. There are two essential differences: Operating systems and Plesk Panel.

Our Dedicated Servers are configured exactly like the DV or DV Developer, except each one hosts only one customer. Each Dedicated Server is a single-tenant box with 64GB of RAM, and all resources on the box are allocated to you. If you need a high performance server with total resource allocation, Dedicated is the solution.

Dedicated Server has three types: DV Dedicated, Developer Dedicated, and Managed Dedicated. Which is best for me?

All three are single-tenant services hosted on identical powerful, reliable, high-performance hardware. There are three essential differences: Operating systems, control panels, and CloudTech Premium Support.

  • DV Dedicated is provisioned with CentOS 6 and has your choice of either Parallels® Plesk Panel or cPanel installed. If you are a hosting reseller, you may prefer the DV Dedicated due to the robust reseller features of Plesk and cPanel.
  • Developer Dedicated offers a choice of Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, or CentOS operating system on a bare-bones server without a web-based control panel. DV Developer enables you to install and configure the stack above OS according to your requirements. If you need a highly-tailored or unique LAMP/Application stack, or you want Ubuntu, Debian or Fedora, then the Developer configuration would be better for you. Note: Linux command-line skills are required to manage Developer Dedicated.
  • Managed Dedicated is provisioned with all the same features as DV Dedicated, and also includes our award-winning CloudTech Always-On premium support services. The Managed Dedicated server is fully managed by our team of CloudTech engineers, who provide 24/7 performance monitoring, daily security scans, performance analysis and consultations, and other server administration tasks.

Is it recommended that I have a technical background to host with the Dedicated Server solution?

Customers using a DV Dedicated or Developer Dedicated solution should have an overall competency in IT and server administration, or have someone to handle this internally.

For customers who want the resources of a Dedicated Server but don’t want to handle server administration internally, we now offer Managed Dedicated. It has all the same features as the DV Dedicated server, and also includes our award-winning CloudTech Always-On premium support services.

How many websites can I host on a single Dedicated Server?

DV has no restrictions on the number of websites you host on a single service. However, keep in mind that having sufficient resources is also a factor. A Dedicated Server can easily host hundreds of websites. For Dedicated Server, we provide an unlimited-domain Plesk or cPanel license free of charge.
