Dedicated Server - Managed Vs Unmanaged Questions


Recommended Posts

Long time virtual hosting user, now am considering using TCH for my company's dedicated hosting needs. A few questions first:

 

1) On the managed versus unmanaged FAQ page there is a line for only managed that says: Secure Server with Firewall. What does that mean exactly? Are unmanaged servers not behind a firewall?

 

2) Dedicated servers use the WHM like reseller accounts, right? So multiple domain names can be managed and allocated resources, right?

 

3) As stated in the differences FAQ, only in the fully managed package are services restarted when needed. For the unmanged, how are these services restarted? Through cPanel? Or is there shell access for the admin?

 

4) Hard drive space states: 160GB x 2. Is this a RAID 1 setup for backup redundancy? Or RAID 0 setup for speed and actually 320GB of space?

 

Thank you.

Both managed and unmanaged have the same firewall / disk space / eystems etc. in them

Correct

 

3) As stated in the differences FAQ, only in the fully managed package are services restarted when needed. For the unmanged, how are these services restarted? Through cPanel? Or is there shell access for the admin?

 

On a dedicated server you can do it either via SSH on whm, you have access to both.

 

4) Hard drive space states: 160GB x 2. Is this a RAID 1 setup for backup redundancy? Or RAID 0 setup for speed and actually 320GB of space?

 

You could set it up as RAID. Our default setup for dedicated servers is two separate disks with one acting as a backup - but open a ticket with your requirements.
