What’s included with Virtual Dedicated Servers?

Oplink time Server colocation

Same Day Deployment

All VDS sales orders are setup during business hours Mon-Fri 9-5pm Central Time. Most VDS orders are provisioned in about 15-30mins.

Virtual Dedicated Servers (VDS) are 100% dedicated to only you with 0% resource sharing.  We combine the best of VPS and Dedicated Servers.  This provides you with the instant upgrades, instant server provisioning, and easy to manage portal.  Unlike VPS (which share compute resources with other users on the node) VDS has 0% sharing! 100% of the server resources are dedicated to only you!

Our network offers the lowest latency multi-homed backbones to Lumen and Cogent. We include Free DDoS Protection with up to 100Gbps powered by Corero.  Our high bandwidth network will provide you with the fastest network connection at all times.

All Colocation, Dedicated Servers, and VDS include:
1Gbps Unmetered Dedicated Internet Port

Optional Upgrades:
10Gbps Unmetered +$99/month per device (For normal traffic)
10Gbps Unmetered Dedicated +$399/month (For sustained heavy traffic)

The main factors separate VDS, VPS, and Dedicated Servers are setup and administration. With a dedicated server, you (as the owner) manage all facets of the machine’s administration – from its core configuration to the data hosted, you maintain all control and responsibility down to the bios/ipmi if you choose to.  On VDS, we manage the core configuration of the bare metal.  Each VDS nodes runs a tiny Linux OS that allows easy management.  This gives you the instant setup and easy to use portal features that come with VPS, but VDS gives you 100% of the resources. Virtual Private Servers mirror VDS, but you share compute resources with other users.  VDS has 0% resource sharing.

While the exact number will vary depending on the server’s CPU and RAM, a single dedicated server should be able to host between 150 – 500 websites.

We are based in the TRG Datacenter in Spring Texas. All of our equipment is based in the Spring Facility with dual backup power generators and in an ideal location to minimize downtime and protect against extreme weather conditions.

Choosing the right Cloud VDS is an important decision to make. Server configuration should be based around core business needs and hosting requirements. In general, the main specs to consider are the following: CPU, Memory and Storage. When it comes to CPU, a higher CPU clock frequency will naturally deliver faster performance – but this may not be necessary if you run a small to medium sized enterprise. More Memory maybe necessary if you need to host larger services or websites. For storage, all of our server plans use SSD or NVMe, which are far more durable and lightning fast compared to standard HDD.
