**Some Specials are only available for a limited time, and are subject to availability of hardware. No free upgrades.
A large range of system software updates are handled for all clients. We update basic system software such as Apache and PHP upon request, perform nightly security updates, as well as
any other general system administration duties you may need. While a good working command line knowledge is useful, with Liquid Web, you may never need to log in through SSH again. Liquid Web's Wholly Owned Data Centers
Liquid Web currently owns and operates three data centers in Lansing, MI totaling over 130,000 square feet of space. Our multi-homed network is powered by premium tier-1 bandwidth
featuring diverse path OC-48 fiber connectivity with carriers Verizon/MCI, Sprint, and Savvis/C&W. The implementation of premium tier-1 bandwidth as well as N+1 redundant routing hardware
ensures enhanced stability and superior performance in reliability, throughput and latency. Coupled with BGP, network consistency is assured in the event of a provider network outage, low level
line failure, fiber cut, or even a core routing hardware failure. All network traffic is monitored by an Intrusion Detection System to alert us to any nefarious activity at any network layer before it can
impact service consistency.
Power Systems, Environmental Systems, and Physical Security:
Liquid Web's Power systems are reliable and robust featuring a large centralized UPS system and multiple backup generators, providing our data centers with continual power even
in the event of extended total electrical blackout.
Environmental systems keep ambient temperatures at a constant and actively remove foreign particulates from the air to ensure the best ventilation possible for all servers.
Data Center entry is limited to technician staff and security monitored throughout our entire facility utilizing an array of CCTV cameras running 24/7.
Quite simply: Each Liquid Web data center is engineered from the ground up for maximum performance, stability, and security.

I presume your servers managed? I have a festival website where the festival comes for 30 days, once a year. Thus I need a dedicated server for just 5 weeks.
I understand monthly hosting constitutes of 4 weeks, but i would require an additional week making this 5, i would be more than happy to pay the difference of the additional week. However if we can get this going and setup within the next 1/2 days i would be interested in taking out a dedicated server for 5 weeks.
I am after a good price as i have a budget.
Just for your information i am currently looking around. I have posted the below on another thread asking another provider the same.
Let me know your thoughts.

I must warn you i know very little about Dedicated Servers. However i will tell you what i want to do. I simply want to host 1 website which will need to handle around 30k+ visitors per day. During a busy peak period we receive around 10k worth of hits in a space of 2 hours. I make that 83 hits per minute.
I want to simply host a Joomla website which will require PHP and MySQL and cPanel. I simply need a standard setup like any other hosting.
I've hosted the site fine on the following specs with a previous provider
CPU (C2Q) Q9550 (4x2.83GHz 12MB)
Memory 4GB DDR2 RAM
HDD1 250GBs SATA-II
HDD2 250GBs SATA-II
IP's 8 included
Bandwidth 5000 GB
Port Speed 100 Mbit
From the list above i only require CPU and RAM power to handle the many users. I could do with 1000GB worth of Bandwidth and 5GB worth of storage, the rest i dont know what they mean.
I host a festival website on my reseller account which requires dedicated hosting during the festival period once every year for a period of 30 days, hence i am always after dedicated hosting once a year. I understand the servers are on a monthly basis but will you allow me an additional week making that 5 weeks? I am happy to pay the difference for the extra week.
I've got my eyes on what i think should be right for me, but i want to hear what you think would match the CPU and RAM specs above.
Need a dedicated server with similar specs to the one ive posted above.
I need the server managed (i.e cpanel, mysql, ftp etc everything needs to be setup for me to go.) Once the server is setup and my site is live i will not require any further help.
Don't require backups, don't require windows, dont require raid,
I need the server for 5 weeks (will pay the difference for the extra week)
I need the server within the next 1/2 days.
Help me and put me out of this misery as my time is running out!
