All Dedicated Servers are delivered "Ready To Go". We take care of the initial set up and hardening, as well as ongoing server maintainence. This leaves you to run your websites without worrying about your server.
We include automated 24/7 offsite monitoring on all of our Dedicated Server plans free of charge. We monitor every aspect of your server including Ping, HTTP, MySQL, Named, Server load and more!
The Web Host Manager (WHM) control panel allows you to perform many server administration tasks via an easy to use GUI. It also allows you to create cPanel hosting accounts on your Dedicated Server.
All Dedicated Servers run on server grade hardware with RAID protected disk drives as standard. Our UK datacenter is located in Kent and uses only premium bandwidth, giving you the best possible access times for your website visitors.
Moving your data from one server to another is a pain and to be honest, it's something that you probably just don't have the time and/or knowledge to do. But don't worry, we are experts when it comes to Dedicated Server migrations! With thousands of migrations under our belt, you can rest assured we will move your data with zero downtime.
We're incredibly proud of the support that we provide here at D9 Hosting. If you take a look at any of our client testimonials you'll notice our support team is often praised. No matter how big or small your problem, a member of our Technical Support team will answer your support query within 1 hour, 24/7/365!
By default, all of our Managed Dedicated Servers are provisioned using the CentOS 7 operating system. You can also choose to run the CloudLinux OS on your server by selecting this addon during the checkout process. If you would like another operating system then please get in touch with us for a custom server quote.
Yes! We provision all Managed Servers with RAID protected drives but this isn't a substitute for taking backups, as RAID arrays can and do fail. we strongly recommend taking regular offsite backups of all your important data. We provide multiple backup options including automated external backups and attaching an additional backup drive to your server, all of which can be selected during the checkout process.
Yes! If you would prefer to use Solid State Drives on your Dedicated Server please get in touch with us prior to ordering and we can provide you with a custom quote. We can also provide you with a hybrid SSD / SATA drive solution by creating two RAID arrays on your Dedicated Server. One array would contain 2 SATA drives and the other array would contain 2 SSDs. We would then run the OS and MySQL on the SSD array and use the larger SATA array to store your main website files. We find this gives you a slight performance boost when compared to a standard SATA set up. The Hybrid drive solution is available to select during the checkout process under the "SSD for OS & MySQL (Improves Performance)" heading.
Yes! Unlike other managed service providers, we do provide you with full root access to your Dedicated Server (unless you don't want us to!).
