I would struggle without the speed and care of Pickaweb's customer service. Often, late at night, I need to quickly resolve an issue or take care of a problem on a client site, and Pickaweb's round the clock chat support has saved my skin on more than one occasion.

Getting the right answer at 3am in the morning, and within a few minutes, is just one of the reasons I stay with Pickaweb, but it could be the most vital to me. I would recommend them to anyone.

Dedicated Servers FAQs

A dedicated server or dedicated hosting service is a type of hosting where an individual or business rents an entire server. The server is not shared with other users.

A Dedicated Server is a physical server which is dedicated entirely to one client. No other websites or applications can be hosted on the server.


This means that the client gets exclusive use of all of the server’s key resources, i.e. CPU, RAM and HDD. The client can install their choice of operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows) and the Distro of their choice (e.g. Ubuntu, CentOS).
The advantages of Dedicated Hosting are as follows:

  • High reliability
  • High performance
  • High level of security
  • Better IP reputation (not sharing with other websites)
  • No sharing means no noisy neighbours

Yes we can. When you sign up to our dedicated servers, there is an option to order the managed service, which costs £19.99 /mo. With this addon, we will take care of your servers and do all the required security updates to make sure your server is always secure.

With our servers you get root access and you do not share resources with anyone else. Also there won't be any usage limit like, No of emails per hour, disk space etc. You can also install whichever applications you need to with no limits.

Our dedicated servers are located in the UK, in a robust datacentre in London.

Yes. You are in full control of the server. You can SSH, have root access.

Why not try our cheap dedicated servers today! We offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

If you are familiar with using a reseller or VPS control panel then it will be pretty similar. You need to have some technical knowledge in order to manage a server.

However if you are not comfortable we can manage it for you.

You can choose to have any control panel that you prefer or none. It all comes down to personal preference. We would recommend cPanel.

Generally, there are three types of hosting server configurations:

  • Shared Hosting
  • Virtual Private Servers (VPS)
  • Dedicated Servers

Shared hosting servers are servers that are shared among a number of clients. The advantage is that the hosting is available at a lower cost.
The disadvantage is that all the clients share all of the server’s resources like bandwidth, CPU, etc..
With a VPS and a Dedicated Server the advantage is that the server’s key resources are available for one client only although as we shall see later in this document there are some key differences to be aware of when choosing between a VPS and a Dedicated Server.

The main benefits are as follows:

They Are More Reliable and Powerful

Dedicated servers are both reliable and powerful as you are able to access and utilize all the resources like processor power and disk space, without any downtime owing to limited memory/RAM space or “Noisy Neighbours” utilizing more resources than they should. Uptime is increased and able to effectively and smoothly run resource-intensive applications and websites.

High Level of Security

Since you are the only one who is allowed access to your server, then it is more secure than when sharing with other clients, whose activities may introduce security vulnerabilities. Moreover, you can deploy advanced security measures in your server, customizable to your requirements.

Lower Risk Of IP Blacklisting

As you are not sharing your IP address with other users there is less of a chance of getting your server IP address blacklisted. Blacklisting occurs when the IP of a server is associated with some kind of malicious activity (eg: Phishing, Spamming, etc.) which leads to the server being blacklisted by Internet Service Providers. This has a direct effect on things like email deliverability and can result in extra fees to get the IP blacklist removed.

Custom Administrative Access

You get root or administrative access of the server. This means there are no restrictions on either the software that you install or how it is customized. This kind of access keeps you in control of the whole server so you can monitor resource usage, identify potential threats and resolve them before they affect the whole server.

Advanced Technical Support

Most web hosting companies offer priority technical support to dedicated clients, owing to the fact that most of the clients host mission-critical computing web applications. The priority support ensures minimum downtime or disruption of the server’s applications and services. Here at Pickaweb we employ professional trained experts to troubleshoot and resolve issues quickly and easily24/7 365 days/year.

Servers are mostly used to host websites. You may be hosting your site on a shared hosting server, and may be wondering if you may need to change to dedicated server. The following are factors that you should consider before making the decision.



Performance

If you are on a shared hosting plan you may have “soft” limits applied to your account by your hosting company, even if you are on an “unlimited” plan. These could be for example inode limits or through the use of commercial software such as CloudLinux.

The reason that hosting companies do this is to avoid “Noisy Neighbour” issues where one client could potentially affect hundreds of other clients on the same server by using too much RAM, bandwidth, etc..

The downside for you as a client is that there is a limit to the performance you can expect.

With a Dedicated Server, these types of performance issues do not apply as you have the entire server at your disposal. The only time you may have issues is if you are running heavy applications or getting higher amounts of traffic than the server is configured to handle.

However, in most everyday cases a dedicated server will address these performance issues without any problem.



Security

In case of misconfiguration in a shared hosting server, other users may read your data. Even the system administrators may read your data, even in a VPS setup. But on a dedicated server, you have sole root/administrator access, hence your data is very secure and private and no-one else can access the server.
