Dedicated Servers

Dedicated Servers.

What is a Dedicated Server (DS)?

A Dedicated Server or DS is a physical hardware server that redIT owns and leases to you to use.
We worry about the internet connection, the hardware and the hosting requirements of your rented server, leaving you free to work on whatever you are planning to use the server for.

Why use a Dedicated Server?

A Dedicated Server is for people that want the full use of a server but don't want to worry about datacenters or hardware as we take care of all this for you.
Just like a Virtual Private Server (VPS) you have full root/administrator access to your server and you are free to use the server for whatever requirement you may have.

Whats the downside?

redIT only offer Dedicated Servers with Linux Operating Systems this means that if you don't know how to use and setup one of the Linux systems that we offer you may find that you get overwhelmed quickly.
Our support staff will help you secure your Dedicated Server but we will not go any further than a basic firewall configuration.
