We’ve just done a massive upgrade on our dedicated server range. The new specs/prices are:

- Dedicated 3: $500/mo, Two Quad-core 2.3Ghz CPUs, 16GB of RAM, 4 x 1TB disks in a RAID-10, 6TB of bandwidth
We’ve also made the following improvements:
- No more setup fees
- 1h server activation*
- Available in both the US and in Europe (Amsterdam)
- Centos6-64bit on all new servers
- If you have a shared account with us we can migrate it for you to a dedicated server**
Our managed dedicated servers are perfect if you want the power of our server setup and control panel on your own server without the hassle of setting it up and maintaining it. Here is what you get with our managed dedicated servers:
- We setup the server just like our shared servers, with Centos6-64bit plus hundreds of our own packages that don’t come with Centos6
- You have access to our control panel for easy app installation, site configuration, email management etc.
- We apply frequent security patches for you to keep the server secure at all times
- We backup your data to remote servers every day
- We monitor your server availability from multiple points around the globe and handle alerts within minutes
- Your server runs “bare metal” (no virtualization layer) so you have access to all the server’s power
If you’re interested you can view the configurations and sign-up at http://www.webfaction.com/services/dedicated.
If you’re an existing customer you can order a dedicated server by going to “Account -> Upgrade / Downgrade” in the control panel.
* The 1h activation period starts once your payment has cleared our fraud checks. If for some reason we are unable to provision the server within 1h we will email you immediately and will give you the option to either get a $50 refund as compensation or to cancel the order and get a full immediate refund.
** If your shared account is on a Centos-5-32bit server there may be post-migrations steps which you will have to do yourself. See this page for more information.
