Part of US Dedicated, Los Angeles Dedicated (LA Dedicated) is a dedicated server and colocation provider that’s based, as you might have guessed, in Los Angeles, California. Though it offers VPS and cloud servers, the company centralizes its focus on dedicated servers. The website is super sleek, easy to navigate, and available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
As the name suggests, Los Angeles Dedicated is more of a managed infrastructure provider than a traditional web hosting service. The company provides high-end dedicated server, VPS, and cloud hosting solutions for large corporations and enterprises. The dedicated server plans include some powerful features such as:
- 100% uptime SLA
- Intel processors with up to 256 GB DDR4 RAM
- Free DDoS protection
- Powerful control panel
Los Angeles Dedicated shares server locations with its parent company US Dedicated in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York. The network is fully redundant that uses intelligent route-control technology and their own patent MIRO technology to boost the overall performance resulting in a guaranteed uptime of 100%.
All dedicated server packages come with free DDoS protection which is a plus since you don’t have to install a separate system that might compromise your server. You also have the choice to host your dedicated server on HDD or SSD drives with storage varying from 1 TB to 4 TB HDD and 128 GB to 1 TB SSD.
If you’re looking for simpler solutions, Los Angeles Dedicated offers a broad range of KVM and OpenVZ cloud and VPS server plans with excellent features including 10 GB to 640 GB SSD web space and 512 MB to 64 GB DDR3 RAM. The SolusVM control panel also allows you to fully manage your cloud server, thanks to its solid GUI based VPS management system that fully supports OpenVZ and KVM. In addition, all packages include the same powerful anti-DDoS feature offered in their dedicated server packages.
It’s also worth mentioning that all cloud servers come with rDNS service which is essential for white labeling your server and increase your email delivery capacity.
Pricing and Support
The dedicated server packages offered by Los Angeles Dedicated are quite costly, especially if you add in extra features, but they’re also customizable to fit your budget and also come with sophisticated features, so your money won’t be wasted. You get what you pay for.
On the other hand, the cloud server and VPS plans are less expensive for a premium service. The KVM packages are naturally more expensive than OpenVZ subscriptions, but both are customizable.
Unfortunately, there are setup fees with any package you choose. You’re free to choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annually. If you try to purchase a subscription, you’ll be directed to the parent company’s (US Dedicated) billing page to complete your purchase.
Los Angeles Dedicated doesn’t provide refunds, but if you have an issue with your subscription, you can contact them within the first 30 days of purchase. You can pay via Paypal, credit card, Bitcoin, ACH transfer, or wire transfer.
Like their billing system, Los Angeles Dedicated’s customer support is managed by US Dedicated. You can contact them via email, phone, ticket, they’re available 24/7 (except for phone support). I submitted a ticket with several basic questions and got my reply almost instantly. The customer service is overall great, highly responsive, and very knowledgeable. For self-assistance, there’s a Knowledgebase that includes some tutorials.
