One thing you will get is a free SSL certificate with each server. You can pick from RAM, RAID, CPU, and other storage configurations through the website. The pans go up to $429 for a high-end enterprise server. Configurations start with up to 2TB of disk space, 16GB of RAM, and 5TB of monthly data transfers. This is rather low compared to the unlimited plans or standard 15TB of monthly data transfers on other hosting provider plans.
In IP-based virtual hosting, also called dedicated IP hosting, each virtual host has a different IP address. The web server is configured with multiple physical network interfaces or virtual network interfaces on the same physical interface. The web server software uses the IP address the client connects to in order to determine which website to show the user. The issue of IPv4 address exhaustion means that IP addresses are an increasingly scarce resource, so the primary justification for a site to use a dedicated IP is to be able to use its own SSL/TLS certificate rather than a shared certificate.
Expert Overview :
HostWinds had dreadful 99.47% of uptime in last November with more than 3h of downtime. The same kind of inconsistency appeared in December 2018. That’s too much downtime when you consider the potential lost traffic and sales – especially before Christmas. Their start of the year has improved with an uptime of 99.94%, but that is still not good enough compared to the industry standard.
The ideal web host is the one who demonstrates excellent network quality. Try to find out the host’s ‘Tier’ rating, as it happens to be the best indicator of how good or even bad is the network infrastructure of the host. Those under ‘Tier 1’ are considered to have non-redundant power together with comments and an expected uptime of 99.671%. The hosts that are classified as ‘Tier 1’ have a redundant site infrastructure and their expected uptime is 99.741, whereas the ones under ‘Tier 3’ have dual powered equipment, concurrently maintainable site infrastructure and an expected uptime of 99.982%. Lastly, those within ‘Tier 4’ have dual powered HVAC (cooling equipment), fault-tolerant site infrastructure and an expected uptime of 99.995%. One should always opt for the minimum Tier 4 provider. Any other option will have an extra associated risk in the event one or multiple core components fail.
With unmanaged dedicated server hosting, you’ll need to have the technical expertise to operate your own hosting server. You’ll also be responsible for server admin tasks, configuration, routine maintenance, and keeping the environment secure. Comparatively, it’s a cheaper option than managed dedicated hosting and it gives you more flexibility and control than a managed dedicated hosting.
It is advisable to have a service provider who is capable of providing not only a clean panel but also a functional interface. Generally, Plesk (Windows & Linux) or cPanel (Linux/Unix only) and considered as the most ideal. cPanel is known as the end user name, but to manage your server accounts and the server itself you’d use WebHost Manager (WHM). The aforementioned control panels have been recommended partly due to the fact that they facilitate smooth migration of websites in the event the need emerges. Most of all, undertake a fact-finding study to establish whether the host can install extra software such as 1-click software installer (Softaculous), billing software (WHMS) and others if needed.
By far the best feature of AccuWebHosting, though, is the impressive spec you get on your chosen server. 16GB of RAM is well above standard for the price of their web hosting, as are CPUs running at 3.4 GHz. You’ll also get a colossal 4TB of storage space. According to their support, you’ll also get unlimited bandwidth. It almost seems too good to be true – and it is.
