A dedicated server provides your company with an entire server that is not shared. This is more flexible than shared hosting, and more robust than a Virtual Private Server (VPS), as your company will have full control over the server, including choice of operating system, hardware, and many other features. This allows you to use your Dedicated Server to run applications that require far more server resources than offered by a VPS solution.
ALL SERVERS INCLUDE
All Private Layer dedicated servers feature only enterprise grade hardware. The server chassis and motherboard are manufactured by Supermicro, and feature only Intel Xeon processors. By using only server grade equipment and NOT desktop equipment and processors, like other hosting companies, your server will be more reliable and robust.
The Private Layer provisioning process insures that your dedicated server will be online within 24 hours of confirmation of your order. In most cases your server will be provisioned within 2 hours of confirmation of your order. Our fast provisioning process ensures you that you get access to your dedicated server quickly allowing you to get to work faster.
All Private Layer dedicated servers are contracted on a month to month basis. Unlike other hosting companies who require a long term contract, we allow you to cancel your server at any time by simply giving us 3 days notice. This feature gives you flexibility and saves you money.
The Private Layer support team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All of our server engineers are highly skilled and trained to solve your issues in a fast and professional manner. Support is offered in both English and Spanish for your convenience. Our support allows you to quickly solve issues regarding your dedicated server quickly and professionally.
Each of our two data centers are powered by a multi-homed BGP public network featuring reputable international carriers and 100 percent CISCO networking products from the edge of our network to each individual distribution switch. Each server is connected by default to a secondary private network that allows for SAN access, secure access to the server via VPN and other internal functions.

Every dedicated server is connected to a secondary private network that is separate of the public network. The Private Network connects your dedicated server(s) to each other, and connects your server(s) to our VPN, SAN, and DNS services through a secondary network adapter that is standard in all our dedicated servers. All Private Layer dedicated server accounts include at no extra charge a VPN (Virtual Private Network) login that allows customers to access the private network, and administer their dedicated servers. Accessing your server through a VPN account allows for all passwords to be passed through an encrypted channel from your workstation to the server itself and also allows for you to close vulnerable ports on your server to the public. The Private Layer private network and standard VPN account ensures the secure administration of your server from remote locations.
