Servers are the foundation of any hosting solution. At The Planet, each dedicated server comes with everything you need to start hosting your website or application. Included in the base price are the server chassis and of course whatever configuration of RAM, bandwidth, hard drives, etc. you choose.
With our buying power and technical expertise, your websites and applications can be as secure and as fast as those of the world’s largest businesses — all for a low monthly fee.
When you choose to self-manage your dedicated hosting solution from The Planet, server and application management, as well as any system administration is up to you. But we’ll provision your server and any additional devices (e.g., firewall, load balancer) and host it in one of our SAS 70 Type II certified data centers. You’ll be connected to our enterprise-grade network and get basic tech support services, including:
- 24x7 technical server support
- Web-based self–service ticketing, billing, and server management capabilities
- Web-based live support chat
- Phone support with a qualified support technician
- Network-based security protection — we’ll monitor your system and protect against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks
- Bandwidth monitoring and tracking — track bandwidth allocations and usage on each server through the Orbit customer portal
- Open access to knowledge base
