Questions we often get about Dedicated servers
Why do you need a Dedicated server?
A dedicated server is ideal if you want to have full control over your server environment. You have all the physical resources of the server at your disposal and you can install your own software on it. Small websites will be less likely to need this, but large web shops benefit from a dedicated server because you have more computing power, more flexibility and do not share resources with third parties.
Which content management systems do you support on a Dedicated server?
On a Hypernode dedicated server we support the following content management systems out of the box:
WordPress (and WooCommerce)
Is your CMS not listed? Please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
Do you also offer SLAs?
In addition to the regular support assistance on working days during office hours (08h00 to 18h00), Hypernode also offers support outside office hours. You can obtain additional guarantees on this by purchasing an extensive SLA. The differences are mainly found in the response and resolution times. If you’d like more information about a Hypernode SLA, please contact us and we’ll explain the differences to you in detail.
How does the 14-day free trial work?
At Hypernode we’d like to let you experience what you can expect from our hosting solutions yourself. We do this by making a copy of your current webshop, without obligation, and set it up the way you want it to. We then perform an extensive performance analysis on it and compare it with your current hosting solution. We’re convinced that the performance gained, will convince you to switch to Hypernode.
Is Hypernode managed or unmanaged hosting?
All Hypernode hosting services are managed. We’d like to completely take away your cares as far as hosting concerned. You no longer have to worry about platform updates, optimisations, support and optimal performance, because we take care of all these tasks for you. If you have any further wishes of which you’re not sure whether we can help you, please let us know and we’ll try to find a suitable solution together.
Does Hypernode also offer SSL certificates?
SSL certificates are required to create an encrypted connection over the internet. Google considers this so important that your website will be classified as an “unsafe website” if you haven’t configured an SSL certificate. Not only does this damage one’s reputation in terms of visitor confidence, but it also makes people less likely to trust shopping with you and this may cause them not to order anything. In short, it’s super important to have an active SSL certificate.
At Hypernode we offer managed and unmanaged SSL certificates. With managed SSL certificates Hypernode arranges the purchase, validation, security updates and configuration of the certificate. Your data is always safe and you’ll never have to worry about SSL ever again. For unmanaged SSL certificates we use Letsencrypt. It’s open-source SSL software, fully automated and, above all, integrated into the Hypernode platform.
What is the difference between Shared and Dedicated Hosting?
The difference between shared hosting and dedicated hosting is mainly in sharing a server (shared) or having the server completely to yourself (dedicated). On a shared server you share the available resources with multiple customers compared to a dedicated server, where you have all the resources available yourself. In addition, you have more freedom with regard to the settings on a dedicated server. As a result, a higher performance can often be achieved, because the settings are fully tailored to your webshop. Which is also the reason why dedicated hosting is more expensive.
