Frequently Asked Questions

Making your hosting business even easier

What is a dedicated server?

Dedicated server hosting puts an entire server at your disposal, giving you exclusive access and complete control of all the resources. You can configure it just the way you need it, adding everything from new software to higher levels of security.

Who should buy dedicated server hosting?

Dedicated server hosting is best for those who want complete control over their servers. The power and performance they offer also makes them ideal for running high traffic sites or resource intensive applications.

What type of website should not use dedicated server hosting?

A dedicated server can run any type of website. However, the sort of power they offer isn’t always necessary for running simple uncomplicated websites. It’s also worth bearing in mind that you do need advanced server administration skills to best manage a dedicated server.

Will I be able to manage dedicated server hosting through a web-based control panel?

Yes, you can install a control panel with selected OS versions. Take your pick from cPanel/WHM or the Plesk Obsidian Webhost Edition that’s available on Linux CentOS.

Does Heart’s dedicated server hosting solution offer HDD or SSD NVMe options?

Yes. When you sign up to a dedicated server you get to choose between two disk types: HDD and SSD NVMe. HDDs are traditional spinning disks, which provide the highest storage capacities with less speed than SSD NVMes. NVMe SSDs, meanwhile, are ultra fast. The NVMe drives are not affected by the bottlenecks of the ATA interface, which means they deliver up to four times better IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) than the fastest SAS option available.

What is RAID and do you offer RAID with your dedicated servers?

Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is a means for storing data on multiple hard disks, then linking the disks so that the operating system on your server views them as a single entity. Yes, we provide RAID-1 with all of our dedicated server hosting plans, meaning that we have an exact duplicate copy of your data on two separate hard drives in case one of them fails.

How soon will I get my dedicated server hosting?

On average it takes about an hour to provision a dedicated sever account. However, occasionally it can take up to 24 hours or more. If you need your hosting urgently, call our support team and they’ll do their best to accelerate the process.
