Dedicated hosting pricing table

The most significant of all site hosting platforms, the dedicated servers delivered by HD Web Hosting are charged with different web hosting Control Panel alternatives: (a) Hepsia (with the Debian Linux Operating System only; for free; unmetered hosted Top Level Domains; one single user account login; no server root access availability; our topmost recommendation owing to the addition of the avant-garde Domain Manager – not present by default in any other web page hosting CP on the whole market); (b) DirectAdmin (free of cost); (c) cPanel (a monthly fee involved). Both DirectAdmin and cPanel come with CentOS only; unlimited hosted top level domain names; need a second login for domain, invoice transaction and client support ticket administration procedures; full root privileges. All dedicated hosting severs are available exclusively in the American datacenter facility.

Control Panel 1 - The Hepsia CP is a regular accessory solely when combined with the Debian Linux OS and comes as a gift. With Hepsia you can host unmetered domain names in a single user account. This is realizable because of Hepsia's powerful Domain Manager menu. The other hosting Control Panel tools, i.e. cPanel and DirectAdmin, are available only in combination with CentOS. As opposed to Hepsia, with them you have to use 2 different user account logins. This is so, because of the fact that cPanel and DirectAdmin do not offer any domain registration/transfer/administration possibilities. If you opt for Ubuntu as an OS for your dedicated server, there will be no hosting CP choice.

Domains Hosted 2 - unmetered domains can be hosted with all offered web hosting Control Panel platforms, but only with Hepsia you can register/transfer/manage your website names in a single web hosting account. Unfortunately, the cPanel/DirectAdmin CP setups do not provide such function at all - there is no Domain Manager menu and for that reason they demand 2 autonomous hosting account logins: one domain name management/billing/support account and one web site administration user account (i.e. the actual cPanel/DirectAdmin web hosting CP).

Operating System 3 - you will find out that the Hepsia CP supports Debian Linux only. It's free of charge to install it on your dedicated server. Hepsia is not available with CentOS or Ubuntu. The cPanel and DirectAdmin Control Panel interfaces are offered solely with the CentOS Operating System. Neither of them is offered with Debian or Ubuntu.

Root Access 4 - not offered only with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and offered in all other circumstances.
