Fully Managed Dedicated Servers are just that, machines dedicated exclusively to service just you and only you. Unlike shared, virtual or cloud environments where the server’s resources may be split among other users, a dedicated server will distribute 100% of its resources to power just your websites and applications. Dedicated servers outperform all other hosting environments hands down, the raw power without the added fluff of virtual layers and sharing resources amounts to full control and the absolute best performance in the industry. Together with our industry leading 24/7/365 expert management team, deployed on enterprise grade hardware, and being backed by our fully redundant tier 1 network, you can finally sleep easy.
Our high-performance and fully redundant network utilizes enterprise grade networking and routing hardware to deliver highly optimized, low latency connectivity to all corners of the globe. Centrally located, Chicago is the most connected city in the world serving as a hub for most of the fiber that connects the East and West coasts of North America. This offers exceptionally low latency nation wide as well as to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region making our network ideal for trading, voice services and those with a global presence.
As with most things in life, all hardware is not created equal. Quality hardware goes the distance when budget machines fall short, premium features that we include standard such as IPMI, hot-swappable chassis and redundant 208v power help with reliability, but current generation Intel CPUs, DDR4 2133MHz RAM, server grade hard drives, Supermicro motherboards and enterprise grade RAID controllers deliver the real punch you’re looking for. We know the difference premium hardware makes because we have custom built everything by hand for years. There is a cost difference, sure, but we believe uptime and performance trumps a few dollars saved any day of the week.
No matter what you are hosting, whether it be a hobbyist's blog or a fortune 500 corporate pillar, performance and load time will always be fundamental to a successful web presence. KISSmetrics, a leading Google analytics company reported that one half of the users on the web will leave a site if it doesn't fully load in less than 3 seconds. By allowing BigScoots to optimize your hosting environment specifically for your website or application, whether it be Wordpress, RHEL, or anything in between, you can efficiently utilize all your available resources which will drastically decrease load times and increases user experience helping you attract, keep and convert more visitors.
The BigScoots perspective on management is one not often shared in the hosting industry. Here at BigScoots we believe fully managed to be just that, fully managed, and we’ve built our business off the back of that belief. Since day 1 back in August of 2010 we’ve been operating exclusively in the premium hosting space, and our commitment to our customers has never waned.
We promise to deliver better hardware, better management and support, a better network and better human interaction which we believe at the end of the day adds up to a better host. We want you to hold us accountable to our promises and if at any point in time we drop the ball and aren’t the best host you’ve ever had, you can expect a full refund, no questions asked (psst, you’d be the first).
All of the hardening, optimizing, consulting, custom building servers by hand, proactive monitoring and ongoing managing that other hosts trademark as a “custom” service, we offer standard. We take the worry that you aren’t getting everything you’ll need out of the equation and deliver a solution built with the client in focus, not the bottom line. There is a reason we’re considered different, let us show you why.
