In this post, I will focus on Liquid Web’s traditional dedicated server. What exactly is it and what features does it have? What is the price, performance and security and what kind of support do you get if you go with them for a dedicated server?

Dedicated Server Preparation Time
After successful payment, it will take 24-48 hours for your private server to be delivered. Also, the customizable server depends on your needs. Prices include RAM, Hard disk, uplink port and additional bandwidth etc. It depends on the hardware you choose.
Plans and Pricing
Liquid Web entry-level Linux dedicated server”Intel Xeon E3-1271 v3“Quad Core single-processor CPU starts at just $99/month, which is promotional price. The actual and renewal price for this server is $199/month. Note that this price is for an unmanaged server. And this pricing is for US locations only. Pricing will differ if you choose the EU location, which is normally $249 for an entry-level server. If you want fully managed services, you have to pay for a dashboard plugin. There are 3 different control panels to choose from – cPanel ($42/month for 100 accounts), Interworx ($20.00/month), or Plesk Onyx ($25.00/month). And this server has predefined 250GB SSD space and 5TB outbound bandwidth. This 5TB bandwidth has a 100M uplink port by default. If you need a Gigabit port, you’ll have to pay $50 per month. There is 1 free dedicated IP and Standard DDOS Attack Protection is added by default.

Choosing the package option (managed server) increases the price slightly to $149 per month (promotional price). Actual price with package is $234/month. With the bundle option, you get dual RAM up to 32GB for security, 250GB of Acronis Cyber Backups, InterWorx, Plesk Web Pro or cPanel Premier 100** and Threat Stack Intrusion Detection. This server becomes manageable when the bundle option is selected. Therefore, you do not have to worry about its management and security.

Liquid Web is known as the Most Helpful People in Hosting. Prices are slightly higher than some other hosting providers, but that’s because of the high level of support Liquid Web offers. The support team is always available 24/7 via phones, live chats and tickets. You get a 60-second response time on all phone calls and live chats, and a 60-minute initial response time on all ticket requests. Apart from that, there is an extensive knowledge base and blog section for self-help.
A standard DDOS Attack Protection is included by default on all server plans. You can purchase Threat Stack Intrusion Detection as an add-on for $30 per month. But if you choose the package option, you will get it in the package. Other than that, a 1TB SATA Backup Drive is included at all service levels. You can go with the add-on Acronis Cloud (Off-site and Off-Server) – $40/month for 250GB and Liquid Web Cloud (Non-Server) – $25/month for 250GB. You can buy up to 5TB.
Liquid Web guarantees 100% network and power uptime on all its servers. It is very rare in the hosting industry. This is the second reason Liquid Web servers are more expensive than other providers.
Liquid Web VS. Competition
For a dedicated server, Liquid Web competes with Hostgator and Godaddy. A dedicated server managed on Hostgator costs $189 per month, while Godaddy costs $384 per month, which are non-promotional or real prices. Liquid Web outperforms its competitors in terms of uptime. While Hostgator and Godaddy promise 99.9% uptime, Liquid Web guarantees 100% uptime. This means that Liquid Web servers will stay online all month or all year without a single nap. This is quite surprising.
Another key difference is the default non-server backup. Liquid Web offers non-server backup by default, even on unmanaged servers. Godaddy and HostGator miss this.
When purchasing hosting for our websites, most of us look for low prices or cheap options. A dedicated server provides full room for our websites to breathe and operate independently without sharing their resources with outsiders. Liquid Web dedicated servers guarantee 100% uptime and a high level of technical support, making these servers top notch. If you want complete peace of mind, opt for the managed option. Just focus on the operation of your website and let Liquid Web take care of the administrative and security headaches. If you’re a fan of AMD servers, Liquid Web may disappoint you as it only has Intel servers listed.
