Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers provide you with additional flexibility, and additional CPU and bandwidth capacity over our standard hosting plans.

All dedicated server plans can be pre-configured with TierraNet's control panel system or without, allowing you to configure them with root access. All dedicated servers are TierraNet-owned and managed.

Data Center

The TierraNet data center includes proven power protection with UPS and a diesel generator capable of handling power-outages of up to 24 hours in length. Our network uptime over the last 18 months has exceeded 99.9%.


TierraNet proactively monitors hardware, typically identifying problems before they occur. All dedicated servers include daily tape backups, and since hardware is owned by TierraNet, downtime is minimized in the event of a hardware failure.

Systems are capable of handling several million web requests per day.

Customer Service

Dedicated servers, like our production webservers, are monitored by a live person 24 hours per day. Should the need arise, dedicated server customers can contact the TierraNet NOC (Network Operations Center) to reboot servers, or provide technical support. TierraNet offers a unique level of customer service which you won't find with many providers.

Systems are configured in a similar manner to our production webservers. The installed control panel and services closely mirror the control panel and services which are offered on our standard accounts. Root access is not provided.
