High Performance Dedicated Servers

Dedicated Servers :: Dedicated Servers Overview


Having your very own dedicated server is really the next step up from having a reseller account, or in some cases your website needs to be on its own dedicated server due to the size or amount of traffic it gets. Having your own dedicated server gives you more power and space than our standard or reseller hosting packages, yet we do offer very good shared hosting solutions, the full resources of your server are used for your website(s) rather than sharing CPU/Memory with other customers on the server like in shared hosting.

Network Port Speed ?HelpNetwork Port SpeedYour NameHOG dedicated server will be connected to our network on a 100Mbps port. Should you want to be connected to a gigabit 1000Mpbs port, this can be easily be changed, but will cost you extra per month.   100Mbps   100Mbps   100Mbps
Monthly Data Transfer ?HelpMonthly Data TransferYou will notice that our transfer limits are extremely generous. The minimum we give is 10TB which is a huge amount, all the way upto an unmetered 100Mbps link which gives you the equivalent of 32TB of bandwidth.

99% of our clients do not use anywhere near their limit, infact, most people use less than 5TB of bandwidth in a month.

Power Supply Type ?HelpPower Supply TypeHaving only one PSU (Power Supply Unit) means that if in the ulikely event that it fails, your server will go down.

By having two PSU's in your server, it means if one fails the other will be there ready and you will never even know it has switched! Servers with dual hotswapable PSU's are always connected to two different power sources, just incase one phase fails.

By having dual hotswapable PSU's, it means if one fails, we can change it without having to take your server offline.

Maximum Hard Drives ?HelpMaximum Hard DrivesIt would be nice to have a huge bank of hard drives sitting their powering your dedicated server, but on the ones we offer, these are the limits.

You may want to consider future expansion and what if you want to change to have more than 4 drives on the basic spec server. By planning ahead, it means you can add more drives without taking the server offline, or even worse, rebuilding it.

Operating System ?HelpOperating SystemWhen you buy a server from NameHOG, you specify when you order which operating system you would like to have deployed onto it. We can build any server with any operatiing system, but we do have the standard ones listed in the table below for you to see.

Should you want your own ISO image installing on the server, we can do this for free for you. We are very flexible in how we build servers.

Root / Admin Access ?HelpRoot / Admin AccessEach and every server we lease, the owner or controller of it, is provided with fully unrestricted root (Linux Servers) or Administrator (Windows Servers) access.

Server Location ?HelpPhysical Server LocationAll of our servers apart from a select few, are located within our own cages in the Pulsant Datacentre in Maidenhead, UK. We do not place any hardware outside of the UK as this decreases network performance.   UK   UK   UK
Internet Connection ?HelpInternet ConnectionWe have multiple tier 1 connection to the Internet with different backbone providers. This means that if one fails, the others will automatically take the load. This means that you are very unlikely to lose connectivity, but also means that your server can take several different routes out to the Internet. Because we have optimised out network, this allows your server to take the fastest route out to its destination.   Multiple Tier 1 Carriers   Multiple Tier 1 Carriers   Multiple Tier 1 Carriers
Minimum Contract ?HelpMinimum ContractAll of our servers have a minimum contract length of 1 month. We also do 6, 12 and 24 month contracts.

If you sign up for a longer period, we can reduce the monthly cost slightly to make it a little more affordable.

Setup Cost ?HelpSetup CostWe unlike most companies, DO NOT charge you to set the server up. We cannot even say we lose it in the cost of your server as we don't, and we are sure you will agree!   FREE   FREE   FREE

Operating Systems & Software
We are able to offer you a range of operating systems for your dedicated server including many Unix/BSD variants as well as Windows Server. We can also take care of your licensing and any server control panel requirements such as CPanel, Plesk and Ensim. We would highly recommend CPanel as your control panel for hosting. We are a CPanel channel partner so we can offer you the very best prices on licences at £120 per year per server which you will probably find is the cheapest place in the UK.

Dedicated Server Information
Our dedicated servers utilise Supermicro chassis and motherboards and are all custom built in house using the highest quality components including 3Ware RAID controllers, Seagate hard drives and Kingston FB ECC memory. Every dedicated server package comes with their own IP allocation routed on our redundant Juniper M7i routers with upstream connectivity from Tiscali, Telia and NTT/Verio.
