If you’re like most website owners, you’ll start with a Shared hosting plan to save money during the first months or years, but what happens when your website starts to grow? Your hosting plan needs to handle an increased amount of traffic, and even run more resource-intensive scripts. That’s where our Canadian Dedicated Server hosting comes in to play.
When your website has outgrown a shared hosting plan or VPS, many business owners will upgrade to a Dedicated Server that provides a completely independent hosting platform with a lot more power, backed by the same support and software they’re used to. A Dedicated Server at HostUpon means you will have your own physical server in our Canadian data center.
Even a small business should consider dedicated hosting. Should your site receive large volumes of traffic at an unexpected time, you need to be prepared! The time for expansion always comes around!
The server is exclusively yours and you will have full control over the operating system, control panel and every other aspect of the server. Having full root access to your server operating system, being able to upgrade resources at any time, and not sharing the server with anyone else are just a few of the many benefits of Dedicated Servers.
Your Dedicated Server will be connected to the Internet at 1Gbps on one of our three premium Multi-Gigabit network backbones. This means you can expect a very fast connection to all of your customers and visitors around the world!
One of the most significant advantages of moving to a Dedicated Server is the increased reliability. You will no longer have to worry about how many visitors your website can handle at one time, like you do with shared hosting. That means this type of hosting is perfect for large businesses, video hosting websites with thousands of visitors, eCommerce platforms, and more!
Our dedicated servers are also semi-managed. This means we’ll keep the server-side modules current and updated so you don’t have to worry about it! You’ll still have the freedom to install anything on the server and unlimited access to our in-house support team if you run into any problems.
By default, each Dedicated Server comes with CSF and LFD firewalls, brute-force detection, mod_security and a real-time virus scanner. This is just one of the ways we ensure the highest level of security on your server.
HostUpon’s dedicated servers start at just $175 per month for a completely dedicated physical server in Toronto, with a 2.3Ghz processor, 2GB of memory, 75GB of RAID-protected disk (to prevent data loss, and increase reliability), 5TB of bandwidth and 2 dedicated IP addresses! cPanel/WHM is also included for free, to make managing your website that much easier!
Our most popular plan, DS-100 is $225, and offers twice as much RAID-protected disk space and bandwidth as well as a 2.8Ghz Dual-Core CPU upgrade.
The other 3 plans available range from $325 to $595 per month for the DS-400 plan (Quad core CPU, 16GB of memory and UNLIMITED bandwidth!)

“Well that was insanely easy…HostUpon migrated my entire website over and helped configure my server based on my script requirements. The migration was seamless with the help of John from their support team. Crazy fast and oh I’m loving the WHM control panel. Reliable dedicated servers, no fluff.”
