What is a Dedicated Server?
At its core, a dedicated server is a single-tenant hosting solution powered by bare metal hardware. With their own RAM and CPU, dedicated servers offer users a more powerful, stable, and customizable solution than the public cloud. Choose your preferred operating system, install any desired applications, and utilize your entire server’s resources as needed.
Need 100% of your system’s RAM for a resource-intensive application? Want to emphasize system efficiency for running processes seamlessly? Storing large volumes of private customer payment information?
When you control the entire server, you can accomplish all this and more. Why limit yourself? Don’t pay for a fraction of a hosting solution, when you can improve your system’s power, security, and reliability, all by taking control of the full machine.
What are the Benefits of Dedicated Server Hosting?
Whether it’s higher processing power, tighter security, or long-term savings, the benefits of dedicated server hosting are numerous. In the sections below we’ll cover these advantages and how a dedicated server solution from Hivelocity can help bring financial predictability and system-wide reliability back to your digital infrastructure.
Increased processing power is the most immediate benefit of dedicated server hosting. When it comes to CPU-intensive processes, nothing can beat the computational speed of a bare metal server. After all, if a shared instance is only a fraction of the system’s total resources, wouldn’t access to the entire system automatically prove more powerful?
As a result of this increased processing power, dedicated servers complete tasks and queries more quickly than non-dedicated solutions. The faster your system can sort through large volumes of data, the better your customers’ user experience and the more likely they will remain loyal to your brand.
Therefore, dedicated servers not only keep companies more competitive, they also remove barriers to future growth opportunities, ensuring your organization is never limited by its digital infrastructure.
When it comes to dedicated server hosting, reliability means two things:
- First, reliability means the predictability of knowing your applications and instances will consistently run as intended. When you control 100% of the available resources, you avoid the risks of overlap inherent to a multi-user environment. This allows administrators to build hyper-precise systems with focused, intentional resource usage.
- Second, reliability also means trust. It’s knowing your system will be up and running when you and your customers need it, supported by a world-class network and a team of hosting industry veterans. Hyperscale data facilities like those used by the public cloud, aren’t focused on maintaining 100% uptime; it’s a numbers game to them. At Hivelocity, we provide exceptional service every time. Backed by our 99.99% Uptime Guarantee, you can rest easy knowing your data is in the hands of true industry experts.
Anything that can be done on the cloud can be done on a dedicated server: it’s just a matter of having the right tools. Better yet, dedicated server solutions allow administrators the freedom to use the specific software they prefer, from the operating system to every application installed.
Prefer a certain virtual machine manager? Need a custom combination of VM and containerization? Prefer Windows-based solutions rather than running Linux? With a private dedicated server, you control everything. Build your system the way you want and make updates or changes as desired to ensure your infrastructure remains cutting-edge.
Best of all, the flexibility offered by dedicated servers can help your organization avoid the risks of vendor lock-in. When you run your infrastructure through a proprietary system like AWS or Azure, your ability to migrate instances to a different provider is limited. As your system becomes reliant on their services, their costs can skyrocket, leaving you trapped in a financial pitfall.
With non-proprietary solutions, especially the many open-source solutions utilized here at Hivelocity, you retain full control over your system. Decide which 3rd party applications to utilize, automate your infrastructure with IaC tools like Terraform, and remain free from the trappings of vendor lock-in.
One of the biggest selling points of the cloud is its purported affordability. While the upfront investment of a dedicated server hosting solution can certainly prove more expensive than signing on with a public cloud offering like AWS, it doesn’t take long for hidden costs and outrageous data egress fees to tip the scales back in bare metal’s favor. The truth is, the potential savings of switching to dedicated server hosting are massive. Just look at these case studies on Klink AI and Fleetistics, two innovative organizations who reduced their IT budgets significantly by making the switch to Hivelocity.
Curious to see what your potential savings could look like with Hivelocity? Check out our article, Is Your Cloud Too Expensive?, for a side-by-side comparison of outbound data transfer costs between Hivelocity and the big three public cloud providers. Depending on the volume of data your organization is utilizing on a monthly basis, you could be saving thousands of dollars every month by switching to a dedicated server hosting solution from Hivelocity.
Whether it’s meeting strict data regulations required for HIPAA or PCI compliance, or simply taking a proactive approach to data security to minimize risk, a dedicated server solution offers unbeatable protection against external threats. After all, when you control the machine, you control its security. You decide which forms of software and hardware firewalls are implemented and who has access to what. You get to choose who, if anyone, shares that digital space with you, and maintain control over what traffic you want coming in and out.
With cyber-attacks growing more frequent and data leaks occurring constantly, your customers want protection, not excuses. The fact is, premium security solutions are more important than ever.

Depending on your selected OS, our Instant Deployment servers are ready to go in as little as 20 minutes. With an average deployment time of 7 minutes for our more popular configurations, your server can be ready within minutes of your purchase.
Typically, Windows-based servers take longer to deploy than Linux-based servers, and build-time may vary by location and selected configuration. Unless your desired configuration is outside of the norm, servers purchased through our Tampa, Dallas, and Los Angeles locations usually deploy the same day your order is placed. Other supported locations may take up to a week to deploy due to shipping.
No, we normally charge no setup fee for our dedicated servers. However, if you are ordering a custom-built server that requires custom hardware to be ordered, a setup fee may be added to account for this. This applies for our GPU server options as well.
While we offer many custom options for our “non-instant” servers, configuration options for our Instant Deployment servers are limited to your choice of operating system, software, bandwidth, and add-on features such as firewalls and backups. Because our Instant Deployment servers are pre-built and already racked within one of our data centers, there are no options to customize the hardware.
Typically, our Instant Deployment servers deploy in about 7 minutes from the time your payment is submitted, making them an ideal solution when time is of the essence.
Yes, any of our “non-instant” dedicated servers can be fully customized to your specifications with thousands of possible combinations. Available options include the choice between one to four processors, one to 100 hard drives, RAM ranging from 8GB to 1000GB, and everything in between.
To start, select your desired configuration from our list of available servers, and click the red “Configure” button to begin customizing your selection. On the following page, you’ll be given options to choose your Processor, Memory, Hard Drive, and more.
Yes, our Instant Deployment and Custom Built servers in our Tampa, Los Angeles, and Dallas locations are upgradeable. Options include the ability to upgrade to a better CPU, increase RAM, and add additional hard drives as needed.
To discuss your options, open a ticket with our Sales Team for information on pricing and availability. Upon acceptance, our team will coordinate with you to determine the best and most convenient time to perform your upgrade.
Custom-Built Servers: Our Custom-Built Servers all include 1 free IP. Once the server is online, additional IPs are available for purchase for $2.50/month per IP. To request additional IPs, open a support ticket with our sales team to discuss your options and pricing.
Instant Deployment Server: Our Instant Deployment Servers, depending on your selected configuration, can come with up to a /29 subnet.
Yes, you must order a full class-c at listed rates or bring your own IPs (one-time setup fee), contact sales or networking to setup.
If you need RAID 1, our Instant Deployment servers typically utilize software RAID. If you’re looking for RAID 5, 6, 10, or other, we can add this using a hardware RAID card.
In the Custom Built Server cart, after you’ve selected a second hard drive, options for RAID 1, 5, and 10 will be presented.
Yes! SATA drives are available to our customers and can be purchased in a range of sizes from 1TB up to 12TB. Depending on the size of the drive you’d like to add, additional monthly fees will vary. For more information, call or chat with our sales team today!

No. IRC and IRC bots may not be operated on our servers.
With our 1Gbps unmetered port, you have access to a full 1Gbps dedicated port connected to our Intelligently Routed blend of numerous transit providers. Unless you have specifically requested a 10Gbps port, you are capped at 1Gbps and will never be billed for overage with this plan. This port is yours to max out as needed for as long as necessary.
For example, if you were to max your port out for the duration of an entire month, you would experience roughly 330TB of throughput.
Yes, we offer managed services on Linux, Windows, and cPanel servers. Information about this service and details covering what it entails can be found on our Managed Services page.
If you have additional questions regarding specific services or options available, our sales team can be reached via phone or live chat, and will be happy to provide additional details.
Yes! You can call us for reboots of your server at 1-888-869-4678. Manual and remote reboots are a free service included with all of our servers and do not require you to have purchased our managed services.
Yes, if you subscribe to our managed services, 3rd party software can be installed for you. If you do not have managed services, 3rd party software can be installed for a flat rate of $100.
*Please Note: 3rd party software is installed on a best efforts basis. We are unable to troubleshoot or support 3rd party software, even on managed plans.
To verify exact server and software requirements needed for a specific 3rd party product to work properly, please consult with that product’s support department.
No, we do not outsource our technical support. When you call, live chat, or correspond with us via a trouble ticket, you can rest assured that you are working with a dedicated Hivelocity employee, on-site in one of our data centers.
