DedicatedLoop offers dedicated servers, Virtual Private Servers, and cloud servers. The company has over 24 years experience in high-availability hosting and it operates from its office in Bielefeld, Germany. Its website is available in English only. Its servers are housed in data centers in 23 cities across Turkey, Hong Kong, India, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, France, Germany, Moldova, United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Singapore, Ireland, and the United States.
Features and Ease of Use
DedicatedLoop’s service is for high-traffic large websites that need custom configuration and settings in a more secure environment. If you own a small local business, you should keep moving to check out shared hosting plans on some of the other web hosts that we have reviewed. This company provides the following features and resources to its customers:
- Anywhere from 1TB to unlimited bandwidth
- RAM, from 5GB to 512GB
- Intel processors
You don’t get to share resources like bandwidth and disk space with another customer. Even on the VPS, your resources are virtualized so if another customer uses more server resources, it doesn’t affect you. As such, your website performance is on a fantastic level, as long as you use the resources justly.
Customers get root access to their servers. They are in total control of the security measures that they want to add to harden the walls of the server and prevent malware intrusion and break-in. They can set up any application that they need as long as they are in line with the terms and conditions of the company.
DedicatedLoop supports many distributions of Linux and Windows operating systems including CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, RedHat, Fedora, FreeBSD, and Microsoft Windows Server. You can choose any of them that you want to be installed before you checkout. If you want VMware installed as well, it will do it for you. If you’re not certain which to use, you can always install them later on.
For management panels, CentOS Web Panel is provided for free. This is a high-level control panel that beginners wouldn’t understand except if they have read/watched guides. If you don’t want this management panel, you can choose cPanel, Plesk, or DirectAdmin at checkout, or install another (like ISPManager) later on by yourself.
DedicatedLoop says that it will replace hardware within six hours of breakdown.
Pricing and Support
DedicatedLoop’s prices are reasonable for the services that it offers and stand well when compared with the prices of competitors offering similar features. It upsells a bit with LiteSpeed add-ons, control panels, CloudLinux add-ons, dedicated IP addresses, and Windows operating system versions.
Subscription periods are monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annually. You can pay with your PayPal funds, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Amex.
Customer support is available on Monday to Friday for 24 hours, on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and on Sundays, from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. You can reach the agents through email and online ticket. There’s no knowledge base that I could search for answers, so I had to send an email to support but I didn’t get a reply despite waiting for about a week.
