Our dedicated servers have been upgraded and now contain faster processors, more hard drive capacity and an increase in RAM sizes.

All dedicated server plans have been upgraded and will be hosted in the new Steadfast data center in Chicago. The upgrades will incur no price changes to the Budget and Value servers.

Of note, is the monthly transfer allowance - which has been upgrade to a minimum of 10 terrabytes (10,000 GB) across all servers.

Below is a table showing the upgrades that have taken place.
