If you intend to use a dedicated server for more than just a few months,
it might make sense to purchase a server. Then you just pay us a
monthly colocation fee to house the server in our data center.
While you can make the purchase on your own, we've tried to make things
as simple as possible. So we have set up a special program just
for this purpose.
Here's how it works: You purchase the server directly through us,
usually a Dell server though other servers can be purchased.
Within days we have it installed and running on our network. For
people who use this program, we reduce the monthly colocation fee to
just $99 (normally $125).
Lease to Purchase
If you don't have the cash to purchase the server up front, we can
arrange for you to lease it for 24 or 36 months with a $1 purchase price
at the end of the lease term. Monthly payments for most high
quality servers are usually between $100 and $200. Added to the
$99 colocation fee, the monthly cost for the term of the lease is often
lower than our dedicated server prices. And at the end of the
term, you just continue paying the $99 monthly colocation fee. (of
course, once the server is purchased, you can ask us to ship it to you
at any time if you no longer wish to colocate it with us)
Owning a server isn't for everyone. There are advantages to using
our hardware, particularly in the event of a hardware problem, though
hardware problems are rare these days. The servers you would
purchase do come with warranties, usually including on-site service.
So the risks are low, and the Purchase + Colo option has proven to be
very popular with our customers.
Please note that while we always offer assistance, including reboots and
troubleshooting, technical support is more limited when you own the
