Frequently asked questions about GalaxyVisions' Dedicated Hosting plans:
Q: What additional software do I need to buy?
A: Customers can lease, rather than buy, Microsoft products from GalaxyVisions for a low monthly rate. Additional licensing is available for SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange and other server products. The monthly fee is determined by the number of processors on the server.
Q: How much bandwidth is included with my plan?
A: Each dedicated server is unmetered and comes with 10 megabits per second upstream and downstream. This means that you can sustain 10Mbps up/down for as long as you need without incurring any extra charges. A 100Mbps port is available for an additional charge. In addition, clients can opt to pay just for the port and usage. Clients can commit to using a certain amount of bandwidth so they are not hit with unexpected charges at the end of the month.
Q: Is my server monitored for downtime? How does GalaxyVisions know there is a problem?
A: GalaxyVisions uses a proprietary monitoring system for all dedicated servers. We monitor the ICMP "ping" response from each server - and alert you by email and other ways of your choice if a problem is detected. Clients also can request that additional pots/protocols be monitored.
Q: Can you migrate data from my server that is located at my old host?
A: If the server has a Plesk/cPanel control panel, we can usually transfer it at no additional charge. If the server doesn't have a control panel, transfers are attempted on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes, servers can be migrated without a control panels; other times, it's impossible.
Q: Can my server be upgraded later if my business grows?
A: Yes, in most cases dedicated servers can be upgraded with more RAM or faster/additional microprocessors. After you have selected your server, you will see the available maximum specifications during checkout. The only operating system limitation is with 32-bit Windows 2003, which can only handle 4 gigabytes of RAM.
Q: Do you include a firewall with the dedicated server?
A: Most operating systems and control panels have a software firewall available at no additional charge. Windows and Linux also include software firewall options. GalaxyVisions offers a Cisco hardware firewall for an additional charge.
