Announcing Our New Dedicated Hosting Platform
Very excited to announce our new Dedicated Hosting Platform with high performance options including up to 16 cpu threads, 32GB Memory and 1 TB SSD Storage.
HostGator has amped up their Dedicated Platform to meet the increasing demands of doing business online. With Dedicated Server options that literally double both the processing power and memory available on our current platform.
Double the Processing Power
With more and more business being done online, your server has to be able to handle multiple processes simultaneously as the number of visitors to your sites grow, that is why we included the Intel Xeon-D 1541 processor with 8 cores and 16 threads in our new Dedicated Platform.
What is a cpu thread? Think of cloning yourself 16 times so that you could do multiple different things at once, wouldn’t that be great!?
Double the Memory
To keep up with the increased processing power, we made sure that we had the latest DDR4 Memory with up to 32 GB RAM available on our high end package.
Your Choice of Storage
Of course with the increased compute power, we had to make sure that the storage could keep up the pace. So we now offer the choice of HDD or SSD for your storage needs. If you are looking for a lot of storage but don’t need it to be super fast the HDD option is perfect but if speed trumps space demands for your site, the SSD storage is the right solution for you. But don’t worry with either option, the drives are mirrored in a RAID1 configuration so your data is protected in case of a drive failure.
My personal favorite is the improved scalability. We realize that the compute demands of your website change as your site’s complexity grows and your traffic increases, that’s why we made it easier to increase the resources when you need them. With our new platform, we are able to dynamically scale the resources so adding more cpu or memory is easy; just pick the package that fits your needs and we will resize it for you right on the same server, no physical migration required.
There is one caveat, if you choose to move from HDD to SDD, we would still need to do a physical migration but don’t worry, we have streamlined that process as well.
Free SSL Available
One other important item is the SSL certificate, both cPanel and Plesk offer free SSL encryption solutions that you have full access to with the new platform. Fear not, if the limitations of the free Control Panel SSL Options don’t work for you, HostGator still provides other options as well like Extended Validation (EV) or Wildcard Certs.
Choice of Operating System
For those users who prefer command line access to the Control Panel, we now offer your choice of the latest Linux distros including Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS and on the Windows side the Windows 2012 image.
Beef Up with a Dedicated Server!
Our Value Server plan offers 8GB of memory and 1TB HDD. The Power Server plan comes with twice the memory (16GB) and your choice of 2TB HDD or 512GB SSD. Finally, for the ultimate in memory, check out our Enterprise Server plans offering 32GB of memory and 1TB SSD.
As always our Dedicated Servers include:
- Full root access
- Unlimited email accounts
- Unlimited databases
- Unmetered bandwidth
- 3 Dedicated IPv4 IPs
- cPanel/WHM or Plesk Onyx Control Panel
- Free Reseller account with cPanel
- Fully redundant network in Top of the line datacenter
- DDOS Protection
- 24×7 Support via chat or phone
We are really excited about our new Dedicated Server Platform and hope you are too. As always if you are looking for something we don’t offer, please let us know. We are always up for designing a custom configuration to suit your needs.
