Setup Fee 199.00 USD
Monthly Fee 1,195.00 USD Breakdown
Setup Fee199.00 USD
Base Monthly Fee1,195.00 USD


Domain Name

Typically you should enter your domain without the 'www'.  We use this domain for setting your hostname.  You don't need to own the domain name (e.g. you can order the server before you purchase the domain name then, later on, you can point the domain name to the IP we give you on setup).

2x Xeon E5-2630v2 6-core, Jaketown 12x 2.6Ghz cores, 24x HT cores, 2x 15M L3




We recommend 400MB or more memory if you are running memory intensive applications like a MySQL database or Java Servlets. You need 1GB or more if you intend to run JBoss or Liferay. As you add more memory your server will perform faster and more reliably.

See our distros page for more information about each distro option.

Control Panel

Webmin is an Open Source browser based control panel.  What it lacks in prettiness, it makes up for in power and elegance.

CPanel is one of the most popular hosting control panels.

Virtualmin Pro is a control panel that enables your users or clients to manage their own domains.  It is written by the smart and Linux-friendly folks who wrote the wildly popular Webmin server control panel.  For more info see http://www.virtualmin.com/.

Plesk is a professional web hosting control panel.  It is available only on our higher end plans (since Plesk requires a good amount of memory to run).  It is a great addition to your server whether you are setting up a single website, multiple sites, or are reselling web hosting.

The Plesk install will be a recent Plesk version.  The recommended Powerpack option includes:

  • SpamAssassin Anti-spam Support Interface.
  • Application Pack (including Mambo site builder, osCommerce e-commerce solution, php BB bulletin board, Gallery picture gallery, bbClone counter, phpBook guestbook, and gtChat chat engine).
  • Tomcat Support.
  • Multi-level Support Trouble Ticketing System.

On a server setup as a VM host we would use disks 3 and 4, if present, as a separate RAID array for running backups. We strongly recommend the extra disks because of the additional data safety and backup storage space they make available.

RAID ensures that your data is not lost or corrupted in the event of a drive failure.  Instead of needing to re-setup your server, the faulty drive can be quickly replaced with no data loss and minimal downtime.  To select this option you need to order at least two disks (the size doesn't have to match).

We recommend hardware RAID when using SSDs.

Server Power Options

One of the most common server components to fail is the power supply.  With a redundant power supply your server has two power connections (each drawing about 50% of your server's power needs).  Should one of the power supplies fail then the other power supply can take over.

In selected data centers (e.g. Dallas) we also have multiple independent power feeds to a cabinet.  Meaning your server can stay powered up in the event one power feed is interrupted.

With the 'Multiple VPSs' option we will setup and host up to four VPSs for the the listed price.   We may charge a $10/server setup fee and a $2/server/month hosting and support fee for additional servers.

We can set up your dedicated server as a VPS host.  You can opt to run either with a single VM or with as many VMs as will reasonably fit on the server you select (given that server's memory and disk, etc).

VM Host

When setup as VM host you will get:

  • Regular full filesystem backups.
  • Console-over-ssh access.
  • Data transfer usage stats per VPS.
  • Browser based VM reboots.
  • The ability to do quick and easy distro reinstalls.
  • Dedicated hardware.  No other customer will be running on your server.

For more information about the VM setup, see here.

If you are connecting this new server to another server you have with us, then the private network costs will also apply to that server if that server is not already setup with private networking.


Private Network

Do you have multiple dedicated servers with us?  Will there be a lot of traffic between them?  Then consider adding the private network option.

When you select the private network option we connect your server to both the internet and, via a separate network interface, to a private network switch. The private switch is not connected to the internet. The data transfer over the private switch does not count towards your monthly data transfer allowance (i.e. is unlimited).

5 IPs are included for no extra cost.  After that it is 2.00 USD/IP/Month.

Please note the reason for any extra IPs



You can host multiple sites from your server with just a single IP.  If you want to run DNS, you will probably need 2 IPs.  SSL will require an IP per SSL-secured domain.

Pay a one off, up front fee and get a discounted monthly fee.  Consider this option if you plan on hosting the server with us for more than 10 months.

After this we'll need your contact details...
