Semi-Dedicated Servers (VDS)

If you know that your website is going to have a lot of traffic, you may want to consider one of our semi-dedicated servers. With semi-dedicated hosting, your server will use dedicated CPU, RAM and hard disks. Our semi-dedicated servers also offer the use of dedicated CPU core(s) with processing speeds starting at 2.2 GHz and going up to 3.4 GHz. Though many websites have no problems using a VPS without semi-dedicated hosting, if you have a lot of traffic or will be using a lot of bandwidth, you'll want to seriously consider semi-dedicated hosting for your web hosting needs.

With our semi-dedicated hosting choices, you can choose from either Linux or Windows. No matter what flavor of Linux you choose, you can get full SSH access, allowing you to install any software you need. If you choose Windows, you can get full Remote Desktop access. If you'd prefer to manage your semi-dedicated server through a web interface, we offer an optional cPanel installation.

With our semi-dedicated hosting, we guarantee the server resources you receive as part of your plan. Unlike our competitors in the same price range, we don't oversell the server's resources. You will receive dedicated and guaranteed resources for your hosting needs.

Performance is critical in the hosting world. madRooster.com has tested its Semi-Dedicated Hosting Solution against a few of the top cloud platforms. To review these benchmarks, please download our Semi-Dedicated Benchmark Comparison report.

1 Depending on your chosen plan, your semi-dedicated server will be assigned 1 or 2 physical CPU cores. Each physical CPU core has 2 logical cores (threads) due to our use of Intel® Xeon® Hyper-Threading Technology capable CPUs and will show as 2 CPUs or 4 CPUs in the operating system.
2 CPU, RAM and storage resources are NOT shared unlike in a virtual private server (VPS) environment. The amount of CPU, RAM and storage that your semi-dedicated server will be allocated is 100% dedicated, guaranteed and uncontended.
3 The secondary hard drive by default will be configured as the backups drive allowing you to store a secondary copy of your data for backup purposes on a physically different disk. You may request that we configure this drive as additional storage or otherwise through our helpdesk.
4 2 IPv4 addresses will be assigned by default. Up to 5 IPv4 addresses can be assigned at no additional fee. ARIN recognized justification will be required if you request for an additional IP block. Additional IP blocks can be requested through our helpdesk.

NOTICE: Due to the special configuration we use to guarantee the resources assigned to your semi-dedicated server, upgrading and downgrading between semi-dedicated server plans will generally require migrating from your current semi-dedicated server, to a new semi-dedicated server. In a small number of cases of upgrades only, it may be possible to upgrade your semi-dedicated server without the need to do a migration.
