UK2 Group, a global group of web hosting brands that include UK2.net, Midphase, WestHost, VPS.net and 100TB, has announced the launch of a new 2015 dedicated server range by UK2.net and Midphase. These dedicated servers are available in the UK and US.
Designed to offer the performance and flexibility sole traders and small business users demand, the new dedicated server options all offer standard 1Gbps connectivity to meet a range of needs. Business requirements for HDD capacity, bandwidth and RAM differ depending on the application, and the new 2015 range has been expanded to six dedicated server plans as a result.
This flexibility would mean that businesses simply looking to power their website can choose the specifications needed to offer a great experience without overpaying for unnecessary extras, while e-commerce or video streaming businesses can up their server specifications at low prices.
The entry level hosted dedicated server specifications include: a quad-core Intel Xeon 3.4GHz (E3-1230) CPU, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD, 1Gbps connectivity and 2TB bandwidth. Options are configurable up to a dedicated server offering with two 10-core Intel Xeon 2.3GHz (E5-2650v3) processors, 64GB DDR4 RAM, four 4TB HDD (RAID), 1Gbps connectivity and 100TB bandwidth.
“Our new hosted dedicated server options mean dedicated hosted servers are now a viable option for all sole traders and small- and medium-sized businesses,” said John Morris, COO for UK2 Group. “Our mission is to help people make the most of the web and our new servers make this as easy and inexpensive as possible.”
Built and housed in fully owned data centers with “high performance” networks, UK2.net and Midphase hosted dedicated servers would offer 99.9% uptime. Customers who prefer to manage their server personally can take total control thanks to root/Admin and IPMI and automation, which would make rebooting and re-imaging remotely easy and intuitive. Businesses can choose monthly or annual subscriptions without complex contracts that would lock them into multi-year deals.
With head offices in the heart of start-up territory in Shoreditch, London, UK2 Group‘s businesses offer a range of services including domain names, website builders, web hosting, VPS and dedicated servers.
Its founding brand, UK2.net, was launched in 1998 and has sold more than 1 million domain names to customers from more than 190 countries globally. The company also hosts thousands of shared and dedicated server customers at its multi-million pound data centers in both the UK and US.
