Dedicated Windows NT/2000 and Linux Servers

1st NT offers its clients superior dedicated hosting on the Windows NT/2000 platform or Linux platform.  We have a variety of server plans so a dedicated server system can be created to meet your needs. As well, we can work with you so your system grows as your needs grow.

A dedicated server environment is where there is only one client per server versus the typical shared environment where multiple clients share a single server.

Typically, clients seeking dedicated server solutions have questions and concerns regarding the following topics:

  • Server and site uptime and availability 
  • Server access 
  • Custom application installations and support 
  • Security 
  • Bandwidth 
  • Technical support

A dedicated server provides you with a larger amount of uptime, greater server access, the ability to use custom applications, greater security, greater bandwidth and superior technical support.  Where a shared server can approach 99.5% to 99.9% uptime, a dedicated server can be 99.9%+.
