Good Secure Managed Dedicated Hosting Provider?

Jun 20, 2006

I work for a small web design firm with about 100 clients/domains and we are starting the search for a new hosting provider. We need a managed dedicated server with an offsite backup. We are also looking for a company that knows what they are talking about. If we have a Linux or server question they need to be able to give us a quick straight answer. Also, if they could help us transfer all our hosting accounts from our current server over to the new one that would be a BIG plus.

We have been thinking about Rackspace or but were wondering what the community thought. Any recommendations?

Fed Up With Hostgator Can Any One Suggest Best Managed Dedicated Server Provider

Aug 5, 2008

This is first time i am writing about hostgator using there service since 4 years.

I have 3 dedicated servers purchased with them within last 6 months and orderd for 4th server on 31st Aug 08. And now as business is growing i will need more and more servers every 2- 3 month. But its seems hostgator is not interested in business as they had already grown now. Even they don't care of their loyal customers who are them with years.

On 3rd day of orderd they told me my server will be deliverd within next 24 hours and on 4th day i contact them serveral times they keep on repiting they will upate and then they said server is out of stock and will be available soon and today is 5th day still there is no reply from them and when i contact them they clearly have no idea about it. Some says will get it soon and when i show my ticket. they say its still out of stock . When i contact with datacenter they told me the server is available to order and are never out of stock.

I dont know whats actual reason.

Please help me guys to find good manage dedicated server host so i can cancel my order with them and go to another good company.

Is Your Web Hosting Provider’s Support Is Good

Sep 6, 2008

There are a lot of people whether their web hosting providers are good or not. After months of purchasing their web hosting account they might discover that their web hosting providers are so bad. Therefore, you’d better checking your web hosting provider.

One of the most important parts related to web hosting is the supporting services. So when you purchase a new web hosting account, try to check their supporting services. Try to ask them a few technical questions even you don’t have a problem. It just tests their supporting quality. How do they answer your questions quickly? Ask yourself this question. If they spend a lot of time “two or three days”, it might be poor service. For this situation, my advice is to cancel your account. The most of web hosting companies offer 30 days money back and try another web hosting company.

There are many supports kinds:

* HelpDesk
* Live chat
* Supporting via Phone
* Supporting forum
* And so on

This is all about the supporting part for your web hosting provider. So this is very important to check this service.

Managed, Dedicated, UNIX, Hosting

Oct 27, 2008

I'm currently using a SiteGround virtual private server with the following spec:

OS:CentOS (Linux)
cPanel: yes
RAM: 512 MB
Accounts: 1 main
Traffic: 1,000 GB
Price/mo: $99.00

I'm hosting x2 Joomla 1.5 sites using PHP v5 with the following extensions:
Community Builder

The problem is that both sites have several sizable databases, each in excess of 100k records. After uploading the first 90k records to mySQL it became apparent that performance was going to be an issue. I'm therefore considering a dedicated server, tuned for returning fast DB results.

Firstly, would a dedicated server solve my performance issues?

Secondly, what are the critical components, spec wise, that would ensure superfast DB calls?

Like everyone, I'm looking for the best value, meaning solid support, uptime and a low monthly cost. I have been recommended the following hosting partners, but would like everyones input:

Im thinking about launching a dating/social networking website and i was told that i will need a managed dedicated server package and i just want to know if anyone can recommend a company that offers a high quality reliable service like this? Price is obviously important too.

I would also like to know if countries like India offer good reliable high quality managed dedicated server packages too? Or if its better to go with a company in the United Kingdom or the USA etc?

Perhaps there is someone on this forum who also runs a dating/social networking website and can recommend a good dedicated managed hosting package as well?

New Netherlands Dedicated Hosting Provider

May 14, 2009

We've been reading this site for awhile a colleague, who is a member, suggested we post a request here. We are looking for a NETHERLANDS-based dedicated server hosting company (which, obviously means a Netherlands datacenter) for our single dedicated server. We're not interested in hosting companies based in other countries but offering NL servers; just those that are NL based.

Our business is perfectly legal (as explained below) and we have neither the time nor inclination to debate the merits of our needs and would appreciate respect for that position (as we have read some of the reactions to such requests by US members for non-US servers and many have been less than respectful).

That said, here are three NL providers we're NOT interested in:

Leaseweb. That is based largely on a recent post in which they indicated they shut down servers with little notice if they get even one, even unsubstantiated, complaint about a TOS violation but also because we've read nightmare stories about how they treat small businesses and individual customers. Apparently, they've become too big for small accounts and our business server is as mission-critical to us as their big business clients. We need a provider that respects small business.

Server Boost. We have a VPS with them (we won't say under which domain name or IP address) but are still trying to work out the kinks in that rather new relationship so won't use them for our dedi at this time. That VPS will be the slave to our dedi. They are our current dedi provider with whom we have a Rackserver but it isn't working out for a variety of reasons, the most important being we have no remote access control panel or power management. Right now, we are required to pay for OS reinstalls and just about anything else we need that's not a simple reboot. We don't necessarily believe they are a bad provider and don't want to malign them but our experience with them makes us disinclined to upgrade to a Dell server (and we are "anti-Dell" because of our personal experiences with Dell, anyway). We don't believe most customers feel this way about since their offerings are certainly suitable for most needs.

Therefore, we're looking for different alternatives from Leaseweb, i3D and Server Boost that are reputable, provide high-quality servers and solid, English-speaking, tech support at a reasonable monthly price. (We liked, for example, what OVH was offering but their NL site is in Dutch, only, and we don't want a UK server.)

What we now have:

* Intel Quadcore 2.4 Ghz CPU
* 500 GB HDD (non-RAID)
* max 1000 mbit connection
* 2000 GB traffic
* 10+ IP addresses
* Full root access
* SSH access
* Netherlands company/NL datacenter
* Unmanaged
* No hosting control panel
* Upgradeable RAM, B/W, IP addresses, etc.
* Full hardware SLA

What we MUST have:

* Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4+ Ghz CPU
* 4 GB DDR2 RAM (upgradeable to 8 GB, if nec.)
* 160+ GB HDD (RAID isn't necessary if single HD)
* max 1000 mbit connection
* 250-500 GB traffic p/m
* 15 IP addresses
* Full root/ SSH access
* IMPERATIVE: Remote access control panel with power control and ability to complete repair and maintenance tasks and OS reinstalls remotely WITHOUT having to contact Tech Support or pay for such services**
* Netherlands company/NL datacenter ONLY
* CentOS 5.3 x86_64 Linux (minimal) installed
* Full virtualization capability
* Unmanaged
* NO hosting control panel
* Upgradeable RAM, B/W, IP addresses, etc. as well as to a newer/larger dedi in first 30-days of contract without paying setup fees
* Full hardware SLA
* Responsive, English-speaking tech support, preferably 24/7** by email or phone and response within several hours
* TOS/Privacy Policies/Legal Policies available in English without the "Dutch only" terms valid caveat
* Server/order details available in English
* Fully itemized invoices available upon request
* Server provisioned and ready-to-use within 24-48 hours after payment clears (must be guaranteed in writing)
* MONTHLY contract (with NO 30-day advanced notice cancellation clause**) and PayPal as payment option

(**Lack of these important features is why we're switching providers.)

Prospective providers should be clear that this server is for our completely legal, US-based businesses that represent high-profile individuals engaged in legal business activities themselves. We will host several websites and blogs that are business-oriented and targeted to them, C-suite decision-makers who contract for our services and their audiences.

Our sites will contain NO adult content (legal or otherwise, whether it's called porn, erotica, or whatever), warez, torrents, copyrighted material for which we don't have permission to post/use, or overtly controversial materials like anti-government, hate speech, etc. We won't be spamming, phishing or doing IRC. We will not market to or represent clients who engage in such activities, even if legal in their jurisdiction.

We are not going to be hosting others' websites and our sites/blogs aren't expected to generate excessively high traffic. We use IP addresses for NS purposes and other purposes for which separate IP addresses are needed. So, we won't need DDoS or similar protection.

Our budget is €125.

Please give us your hosting-provider (only) suggestions. We'd prefer only recommendations of NL-based providers you've used. SERIOUS responses only; due to time constraints, we're forced to ignore any responses that don't adhere to our request for provider recommendations or attempt to debate the merits or our needs.

Narrowing Down The Options-what To Do For Secure, Managed MySQL

Apr 3, 2009

We want to serve web pages and I think we're getting very close to picking a partner for that. But we also want to have a secure, HA mySQL instance to vend serial numbers to purchased products. This means two more servers at separate data centers behind a load balancer. HA web servers are pretty expensive, is there a mySQL only solution that would be cheaper?(Connectria?) The load would be very light....

Good Colocation Service Provider In Hong Kong

Nov 15, 2007

our company just decided to buy two servers in Hong Kong and colocate them there. Does anyone know a reputable hosting company (data center) in Hong Kong that offers colocation service?

we hope the hosting company/data center can buy the servers for us - probably give us a few choices with different configurations and prices so we can pick two middle level servers. Is this something a typical data center/hosting company can help us with?

up-time is not critical for our website, but we want a hosting company (data center) we can work with for many years, therfore it has to be a stable and reputable (maybe large) company/center.

1.7Ghz AMD64

Dedicated Vs Managed Vs VPS

Nov 7, 2007

I have a website development business with about a dozen clients. We do a lot of e-commerce work and design work. I have about 3 different hosts that we work with depending on the site. (Some of the hosts specialize in different e-commerce systems.)

I would like to start hosting some of my clients myself. I would like the server to be linux and we will be doing most of development work in PHP and MySQL. We hope to double our client list in the next 12 months.

Is there anyone out there that has a business similar to mine that can recommend going with a Dedicated vs Managed vs VPS setup. I like the idea VPS because of the price, but I'm not sure if a Managed system might not allow me more time to focus on other things. (I priced out a managed system with Rackspace)

I've been working on the web for about 10 years, but haven't been doing a lot of server admin stuff in the last few. I would like a system that is fairly easy to set up, use and get rolling. I would also like to have a system with good support. I've looked at the VPS system Virtuozzo by SWSOFT. It looks pretty good.

Low End Managed Dedicated Server

Jul 1, 2008

I'm trying to find a reliable and established host (not a junior company that may close anytime) that offers a low end managed dedicated server.

My minimum requirements:
2.0 Ghz processor
100 GB disk
250 GB bandwidth
Good support
Reliable and established host

I can't go with a VPS because the site I'm developing is growing very fast, there are some times where CPU usage is a bit too high. My current VPS host has asked me to move that site to a dedicated server, and they are right. With more CPU and memory the site will be alright, but I don't want to risk having to move again, so no VPS this time.

The reason I'm looking for a low end server is that the site is not self-supporting yet, so I can't afford to pay more that 150$/month.

If money wasn't an issue, I would already have picked Liquidweb, their current special allowed me to build a nice server for only 229$/month, but I'm not ready to commit that kind of money yet.

Dedicated/Managed Server

Aug 25, 2008

I am setting up a website that may generate a lot of traffic, though it is just starting out.

Since I'm not sure how easy the migration from a VPS to dedicated server will be (yes, I'm a newbie to all this!), I want to go with a dedicated server.

Since the site is going to be a revenue generator, I don't want to go low on quality - but don't want to spend over $150 pm.

I'm looking for something managed/with guaranteed uptime. A good bandwidth.

I will be running a MySQL database as well as the LAMP based website on the same server initially (later I may separate the database).

Most Secure Dedicated Web Server Setup

Mar 18, 2008

I am seeking a little input from others who use multi-CPU machines with large memory as web servers and mysql servers.

I will be more than happy to give additional information I might have overlooked if you need it. Just ask.

We are starting to run more and more dedicated hosts running joomla applications. I've been trying to find the very best settings for both performance and security that I can for the servers to function well specifically with their joomla applications.

Serves are not used for *anything* else at all.

The servers are strictly used to serve up web pages. No need for anything other than what apache/php, joomla requires and a few other things such as ffmpeg, etc.

I would like to remove all tools which aren't needed for such a server, leaving a bare minimum server which is less susceptible to hacking.

I've never messed with the root account so wonder if I can simply not allow any access as root other than terminal, perhaps not even su by giving another account full root access and of course, while allowing the system to continue to function properly with the many things which must run as root.

I would like to do this on all of my public machines which are of course behind firewalls. I also have load balancers and cache devices in front of the web servers but at this time, they are not activated so aren't in the realm of this question.

Development is done in a separate environment and the data is pushed to the web server via private network to the web servers. This means no need for shared tools, FTP, or anything else which users would need in a shared environment.

The servers are 8-way IBM, running linux and apache, php/APC.
Servers have 32GB of memory and I can install up to 64GB.

Databases are run on separate machines which are also dedicated only to running mysql databases. Same machines as above.

Machines all run multiple network cards bonded as a single IP.

So, my questions are;

How can I best utilize my hardware to take advantage of their memory capacities.

For example, on the web servers, I'd like to find the best settings for httpd.conf which takes advantage of the machines resources.

On MySQL servers, I'd like to do the same as the above, taking the best advantage of the hardware/memory.

For web serving and for joomla, I seek the very best security settings I can possibly get. I say best because since they aren't used by users, there is no need to have a lot of tools and access to these machines so it should not be a problem to tighten these machines up a great deal.

Any input from those who have such experiences would be very welcome as I've been finding no one place for help on this.

What Are The Importants For Managed Dedicated Server?

Mar 20, 2008

I'm thinking of adding Managed Dedicated Server in my services. I'm also currently looking for the right provider, so I can just simply resell his/her service.

But this is my first time to be involve on this service and I would like to ask some advise from the expert people of WHT.

-What are the important things that I need to consider if I offer the Managed Dedicated Server which is also offered by another provider? It's like reselling their service.

-What are the important things that I need to know for my possible clients? What are the usual requirements of many businesses when it comes of having managed dedicated server?

-What are the important/ideal security measures for a dedicated server?

Picking Managed Dedicated Solution

May 12, 2009

I am in the market for a dedicated server that is managed, here is some info to help narrow it down;

-Budget is $100-200 per month, can go to a maximum of $350 but prefer not to

-Website will be based on a blog platform and serve 5-40MB videos on a daily basis

-Need funtionality to limit bandwidth to avoid overages

-Need 24/7 phone support and FULL management in terms of upgrades, installation and security

-I'm not sure how much resources video use up in terms of uplink but i'm guessing I need 100MBps rather than 10Mbps. If i'm wrong let me know.

Other than that...i'll probably use Amazon S3 to offload extra bandwidth costs once I start getting too many viewers. If you need some more info then ask and i'll try to supply it.
