Use custom IPv4 and IPv6 network settings and scale your bandwidth between 100 Mbps and 30 Gbps. Install CentOS, AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, Debian, FreeBSD, Fedora, or any other Linux server OS distribution. Windows Server editions 2019 and 2022 are also available on the edge server configuration page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my Charlotte Dedicated Server protected against failure?
Yes! Each Charlotte Dedicated server hosted in an Edge data center has four (4x) 25-gigabit network interfaces configured for redundancy on 2 separate NIC cards. All four interfaces are placed into a single link access group (LAG) and utilize LACP for individual link monitoring. Your Edge Dedicated Server in Charlotte is connected to two network switches with two (2x) 25-gigabit connection links to the first switch and two (2x) 25-gigabit to the second switch. Each network switch has multiple 100-gigabit fiber connections to the data center's network architecture that features failover protection. The overall networking architecture sustains full data transfer capacity with the failure of any single networking appliance or link. The data transfer from our Charlotte data centers to either the public Internet or the MPLS IP VPN network is secured by two diverse routers for each network. The routers are connected to a pair of network switches. The data transfer can be forwarded through both routers and will switch over automatically upon failure of any networking device.
How does HostColor bill my Charlotte Dedicated Server?
After the payment is made, the billing month starts from the moment we send you the login credentials of your Semi-managed Edge Server in Charlotte. You can choose between a month-to-month contract and an annual contract. All Charlotte Dedicated Hosting services are set to month-to-month contracts by default, something that gives you flexibility. If you want to sign an annual contract, we will give you a lower monthly service fee, however, you will be required to prepay the full contract (all 12 service fees). Please note that each Charlotte Dedicated Server hosted Edge data center and used on a month-to-month contract must be properly canceled and terminated before we stop billing you. All Dallas dedicated hosting services, including the Edge Servers, require a 30-day cancelation notice. However, on some occasions, we allow early cancelations. To qualify for an early cancelation, you must have submitted a cancelation request from your Account 5 business days before the beginning of the new billing cycle.

The 4th IP address is the main IP of your Edge Dedicated Server. Any additional IP addresses can be ordered from and can be used for various services on your server.
