FastServers is one of the best places to go if you need an advanced dedicated hosting solution and you don’t want to pay advanced prices. With no set-up fees and a truly dedicated support team, it’s hard to go wrong. Let’s take a look at their Velocity CX Unix Based Dedicated Hosting plan to see what it has to offer.

This plan starts at $128 per month and is designed for resellers who want to be able to offer their customers the highest amount of features and still keep their overall hosting costs low. With a 160 gig hard drive and 900 gigs of monthly data transfer included, this plan should provide resellers with the opportunity to build cost effective hosting plans that offer decent amounts of data transfer and disk space. The server is a Celeron D with 2.53 GHZ and FastServers is currently offering up to 1 gig of RAM for free.

You can choose between CentOS or Fedora for your operating system with this plan, and you’ll have a choice between CPanel or Plesk for your control panel. The CPanel option will cost an extra $25 per month, while the Plesk control panel starts at $15 per month. For an extra $5 per month you can add Fantastico DeLuxe to this plan. Their remote reboot service is not free, which is a downside, and if you want a firewall for your server, these start at $50 per month. There are also numerous other add-ons, such as more RAM, double hard drives, anti-virus support and more.

For management of your server, FastServers offers a tiered plan. Defcon 5 or unmanaged, is obviously free, while Defcon 1 is an additional $100 per month, but offers priority support, updates and installation. Defcon 4 and 5 are recommended for advanced users, while Defcon 1, 2 and 3 are recommended for new webmasters or companies that do not have any IT staff. The technical support team is available 24/7 via toll-free telephone support and unlike many hosting companies, this toll-free telephone number will work in 35 countries.

While this is a more expensive dedicated hosting solution, the value is high when you consider the amount of services, the quality of the equipment and what you’ll be able to do with this dedicated hosting plan.
