Lightening Fast Speeds
We are the leading and only providers of dedicated servers in Uganda. Plans are designed with BIG and small applications in mind. We have special offers for startups.
web hosting can offer you a choice of operating systems with your dedicated hosting server, with Windows Server 2008 and several different Linux distributions available to all customers. Choosing Windows Server 2008 will carry an additional premium because this is a piece of commercial software requiring a license key, whereas most Linux distributions are open source which means that you won’t have to pay to use these operating systems. We can offer you any Linux distribution with your dedicated web server, so long as you can provide us with the necessary media if it can’t be downloaded from the internet.
One of the most attractive features of our Ugandan dedicated hosting plans is customisation that is available during the order process because this will enable you to tailor your server to meet your own specifications, guaranteeing that the applications and services that you have running on your server will have the power that they need to function properly. Features that can be customised include the amount of RAM on your server, hard drives and any associated options (i.e. RAID) and the bandwidth/transfer for your server.
There may be a sole purpose for which you need a dedicated hosting, one of which could be a database server. As database servers are secondary databases in terms of the loads placed on them, introducing a secondary server for the hosting of your database can boost the performance and uptime of your website dramatically. Any dedicated hosting server can be used for the purpose of MySQL Server hosting, often used as the backend for PHP web applications and other similar languages; on the other hand, if you are using Microsoft SQL Server databases, then Windows is the only operating system compatible with your specifications.
Using a control panel with your server can simplify some of the processes that you have to perform as part of your server maintenance schedule and can open more doors to you, for example most control panels can be used to offer web hosting. We offer cPanel for Linux servers because we believe that this is one of the most efficient applications available for the purposes of web hosting and is an intuitive interface for clients and server administrators to become accustomed to. Plesk is available for our Windows server customers and includes a host of features similar to cPanel including web hosting plan and account management, but with added features specific to the Windows platform including Microsoft SQL Server and ASP.NET integration.
The operating system that you choose for your dedicated hosting server will impact on the method used to directly access your dedicated environment remotely. Linux dedicated servers provide root access which is obtainable through SSH, with Windows dedicated servers offering Remote Desktop access directly to the Windows GUI. Root/administrator access is seen as being one of the staple features offered by dedicated hosting that isn’t achievable with other forms of web hosting and is the key to tapping into the power that a dedicated server can offer.
With a dedicated web server you can install support for any scripting language that is compatible with the platform that you have chosen. Web developers often have their own preferences as to which scripting languages they would like to use for their web applications and with a dedicated web server you can host pretty much any web application, regardless of the language that has been used to develop it. Furthermore, the resources of a dedicated hosting server guarantee that your web application can be used by thousands of users simultaneously without even leaving a dent in the performance of your server.
