| Dedicated hosting is the ideal solution for customers who
require the ability to handle large volumes of traffic or complex CGI jobs. In addition, dedicated hosting can offer flexibility not possible with
QWK.Net's dedicated servers are configured similarly to QWK.Net's regular UNIX web hosting servers, except that you are the only customer on the server. Dedicated servers are hosted in the same facility as our shared hosting servers, and enjoy the same benefits including 24/7 monitoring and response. Server management is QWK.Net's responsibility, and is included at no extra cost. Additionally, if any hardware fails on a QWKServer, we will replace it at no charge.
Dedicated server configurations can be modified if they don't exactly fit your needs. Please contact us for details.
| $250.00 per month
Celeron 500 (or faster)
20GB EIDE Disk (1)
|Ideal for sites that have outgrown shared hosting,
but do not have large transfer requirements or complex CGI jobs. Still plenty
of power for many applications, including light CGI/scripting and database
| $350.00 per month
Pentium III 733 (or faster)
20GB EIDE Disk (1)
|This is a great baseline configuration for
many sites. The Pentium III offers a significant performance jump from
the Celeron, with additional cache and a 50% faster system bus. Moderate
CGI and scripting can be handled, as well as database services. Higher traffic
levels (200-300 GB/month) are not typically a problem for this server.
| $450.00 per month
Pentium III 733 x2 (or faster)
20GB EIDE Disk (2)
|The dual-processor "heavy iron" version of
QWKServer Kilo, this server adds double the horsepower for heavy CGI
and scripting applications, as well as a second disk for rendundancy.
| $650.00 per month
Pentium III 866 x2 (or faster)
9GB SCSI Disk x 3 (18GB Usable Storage)
|If this server can't handle your site, it's
time to talk to IBM about one of their refrigerator-sized offerings. The
QWKServer Peta offers dual Pentium III 866's, additional
RAM, and a SCSI disk array for the ultimate data protection and performance
|DETAILS AND NOTES|
| QWKServers include a monthly bandwidth allocation of 30GB,
or about 128KB/s. Additional bandwidth is available at $5/GB. Bandwidth is computed and billed based off your total, actual aggregate usage - not
by averages, peaks, or any other method. Unless special conditions exist, all servers run unthrottled. Data can flow from your server at up to 10Mbps
or more, ensuring that your site will not slow down during peak periods because of throttling limitations.
QWKServers are normally available for use within seven days of ordering and receipt of payment.
All servers are built to the same quality specifications as our standard hosting machines. This includes an extensive burn-in, 100% steel American-made rack-mount cases, high-quality Tyan motherboard, Micron SDRAM, 100Mbps full-duplex ethernet, and assorted extras. IDE disks are IBM DeskStars, and SCSI Disks are Seagate Cheetahs or Barracudas. These drives have excellent quality/performance records with us.
There are no setup fees for QWKServers. However, we do require the first month's fees to be paid in full before server activation. You may upgrade to another QWKServer at any time. There will be a $250.00 fee if you choose to do so, to cover staff time in moving your data and configuration to the new server.
Administrative ("root") access is not available for QWKServers. We cannot guarantee quality or reliability of service when individuals other than QWK.Net Staff members have administrative access, so we have chosen to err on the side of system reliability in this case. However, we are happy to make reasonable modifications to your server's configuration upon request. Significant assistance with the setup of additional software on your server may be billed at hourly rates, with your approval and at our discretion.
