What is a dedicated server?
A dedicated server is a physical dedicated server which is racked in our state-of-the-art data center solely for you. No other tenants will use any IT resources (CPU, Ram, Storage capacity and performances) from the dedicated server you chose.
How and when will I have access to my dedicated server?
Once an order is received, our billing department will review the order and once approved, it takes around 4 hours to provision any servers with Linux based dedicated server and around 4 to 6 hours for a Windows Server based dedicated server. The credentials of the servers will be sent to your email address and you will have full root access/administrator access to your server
Are all dedicated servers compatible for my needs?
A dedicated server will provide you IT resources (CPU, RAM, Storage capacity, storage performances (IOps) and bandwidth. As long as you have the right OS and right environment (for example, PHP versions, MySQL or MSSQL, Easy apache, Litespeed, IIS etc…) for your applications/3rd party software, and that you have enough IT resources to run your project, you will be able to use any dedicated server.

What is a RAID configuration?
It is a way that we can configure for your storage units. We generally recommend RAID 1 or RAID 10 as they will mirror the data between multiple storage units for redundant purposes (ex: 2 X 1 TB HDD in RAID 1 will offer around 1TB of storage capacity). A RAID 10 configuration (Minimum 4 storage units) will provide better performances as it will distribute the write and read on different storage units. Not sure about what should you choose?
