You can easily manage your dedicated server account from a web browser thanks to our intuitive WHM control panel. Further, you get a cPanel license for unlimited domains hosted on the server. Thus, for each hosting account that you create on your server, you will be able to provision an independent cPanel. If you are in the web hosting business, kick-starting your Hosting business would never have been simpler! Whether you are managing one, or hundreds, of servers and/or websites, WHM's user-friendly interface allows you to customize your web hosting experience to fit your needs.
Storage on the Cloud
To make sure that you will never run out of space on your server, we give you the power to infinitely expand your storage using our Shared storage device. This is in addition to your default local RAID 1 mirrored hard drives. This Cloud storage (a mount on your server) is provisioned instantly, with one click of the mouse.
This add-on facility is currently available for dedicated server plans hosted at our US data center.

Choice of Server Location - India/USA
When a user types your website into a browser, the request travels all the way from user computer to your server and back. The time taken for this is called Latency. Latency is a big reason for the slow performance of a website. In fact, in our internal tests we have found that latency can be as much as 30 times higher for a poorly setup website. Fixing such issues requires an expert website developer. The good news is that even with a poorly setup website you can reduce latency by hosting on a server closest to where most of your customers are. The faster your website loads, the fewer customers leave your website and the more business you do.
