Liquid Web Founded more than 20 years ago, US-based Liquid Web has grown into a $100 million web hosting business which now manages 1.5 million sites for 45,000+ customers across its ten global data centers.
The company offers powerful managed hosting products targeted squarely at business and professional users. That means no free plans or basic shared hosting – Liquid Web is all about high performance, highly configurable cloud, managed application and dedicated server products.
Liquid Web dedicated servers come in a variety of configurations, ranging from a server with single processor, two 480GB solid-state drives (with a 1TB backup drive), 5TB of monthly data transfers, and 16GB of RAM (starting at $199 per month) to a server with high-end, dual processors with two 480GB solid-state drives (and a 4TB SATA backup drive), 8TB of monthly data transfers, and 64GB of RAM (starting at $599 per month). Clearly, Liquid Web’s dedicated servers are aimed at businesses that want sharp website performance and that have the money to spend on it.

A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual operating system (or instance) that resides inside a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. The parent server divides up resources between all of the virtual servers via software called a hypervisor. The hypervisor creates and runs the VPS instances.
A cloud VPS instance is just like a regular server and is managed through an easy to use control panel. Since a cloud VPS duplicates many of the properties of a physical server, it also provides similar functionality and processes.
In a cloud VPS setting, you’ll have full control to resize your server up to accommodate spikes in traffic or scale it down for post-seasonal businesses. The ability to upgrade or downgrade allows you to pay for only the resources you use on the VPS server.
A dedicated server is a type of remote server (one that is not located on your premises) that is exclusively dedicated to a single individual, organization or application. It is usually deployed, hosted and managed by a hosting, cloud or managed service provider. It is not shared with any other customers, services or applications unless multiple servers exist within that infrastructure. Typically, a dedicated server is rented on a monthly basis and provides a stated amount of memory, hard disk space, and bandwidth to a client as this typically saves router, internet connection, security system, and network administration costs.
Their highly trained staff are ready to manage your hardware, web server and even offer “Beyond Scope” support for software that is not covered under our fully managed umbrella. Their servers come with multiple levels of management, that are suited to meet your specific needs.
