Vlan24 offers the Korean dedicated server hosting, colocation services, and security services in the heart of U.S.A. But it doesn't do simple shared hosting for beginner webmasters.

Overview

Vlan24

Vlan24 has been a dedicated server and colocation provider since 2003. With servers located in Los Angeles, this was the first Korean company to own a data center in the U.S.A.

This vendor targets small to medium-sized businesses, and it also provides consulting services to large corporations. Its website is available in Korean and English but not all pages appear to be translated into English.

Features and Ease of Use

Vlan24

Vlan24 has servers across Asia and the U.S: in Seoul (South Korea), Hong Kong (China), Tokyo (Japan), Singapore, San Jose, Maryland, and Florida. It specializes in dedicated server and colocation services for professional e-commerce users; from database servers to streaming and web servers. Everything is customizable, so you can configure an independent server that comes with full control.

Here are some of the features you can look forward to:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Port monitoring
  • SSD storage
  • 24/7 support

Vlan24’s four dedicated server options let you mix and match to make your own package. You can choose from four different CPUs, RAM from 4 GB to 64 GB, and up 500 GB SATA or up to 250 GB SSD storage. The port monitoring with all dedicated servers helps you monitor the network usage of your server.

From a security perspective, this vendor provides DDoS defense (to protect your server from malicious attacks), firewall service (to improve the service’s overall stability and prevent data leakage), and network acceleration (for faster transfer rates no matter where you are in the world). You can also upgrade your server hardware as your business grows.

Pricing and Support

There are no fixed price plans for Vlan24’s dedicated server service, so you have to contact the company to get a custom quote. While this gives you the freedom to choose exactly the resources you require, it makes it difficult to compare this company’s prices with its competitors.

Although there are plenty of communication channels – including ticket, telephone, and social media – I never received a response to my initial approach. For self-support, there is no knowledge base (which is not that unusual for a dedicated server provider), but there is a resources section that contains an acceptable use policy and a terms-of-service.

Bottom line on Vlan24

My feelings about Vlan24 are mixed. Although this company does a good enough job of providing dedicated server services, it doesn’t do the other kinds of hosting I’d like to see; specifically, shared hosting. I’d also feel better about it if I’d received a response to my initial inquiry.

Pros

  • 99.9% uptime
  • U.S. servers
  • Network acceleration service
  • DDoS defense

Cons

  • No shared hosting plans
  • Unresponsive support
