HostGator’s Windows server hosting takes web hosting to another level. Host Gator’s Windows servers are packed with next generation features designed for the future. All standard Windows server features are offered on the four server plans, in addition to other special features unique to each plan. When you purchase a Windows server from HostGator, you can setup any edition of ASP on it and can have more than three database connections to it, including Access, MySQL, and MS SQL.
HostGator has a diverse range of hosting options for Windows applications and other web services based on Windows. The hosting options are offered through four server plans – Basic, Standard, Elite, and Pro dedicated servers. All the four plans of dedicated servers offer clients a managed service so that they can tailor a solution that perfectly meets their unique needs. Also, by providing a managed server, clients are able to concentrate on things that make their businesses flourish, instead of managing the server.
Also, the servers are very scalable since there are no resource restrictions. This is economically wise both in the short-term and long-term, especially for small startups and personal businesses.
The cheapest plan is the Basic dedicated server offered at $139 for the first month and $174 per month for the subsequent months. With 10mbps uplink speed and bandwidth of 10 TB, the Basic server is ideal for a small personal business that hasn’t picked up a great deal of web traffic. This plan also comes with a total of 500GB of space, 2GB of DDR3 memory, and 5 dedicated IPs.
The Standard plan has similar features as the basic plan for hard-disk space, bandwidth, and the processor (Intel Quad Core 3450). However, the uplink speeds are scaled up to 100mbps and the memory is increased to 4GB DDR3 at a cost of $175 for the initial month and $210 for the ensuing months.
The Elite and Pro dedicated server plans offer pretty much the same features for the processor (Intel Xeon Quad Core 3470), bandwidth (10 TB), hard-disk space (2×500GB), and uplink speeds (100mbps). However, the Pro server offers greater speed and performance owing to its 8GB of memory compared to 4B of the Elite plan. Both plans are typically ideal for businesses in the big leagues, with several applications and services to be hosted.
Overall, HostGator’s excellent Windows server options are backed by the superior customer support ensures that you’re fully aware of what you’re getting into before purchasing any server plan.
