Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during the on-going situation. All of HostDime's global data centers have continued to remain operational. As we continue to work toward returning to more normal operations we are happy to announce that our Orlando data center will be expanding Colocation appointment-only access. Starting October 1st at 10:00 am EDT we will begin scheduling multiple clients simultaneously where reasonable to maintain social distancing. We will also be re-opening our Colocation lounge and conference room reservations at this time.

To schedule an appointment for our Orlando data center please open a ticket via your CORE portal and our Data Center Operations team will work with you to schedule access.

We applaud our on-site staff and all other IT workers who are playing an essential role in helping businesses stay online during this situation. Our sales team remains available during normal working business hours ready to help with any of our products and services as usual. We will continue to provide notifications for facility specific access closure or status changes as we progress toward returning to normal operations. We sincerely appreciate the continued support from our team, our clients, and our partners as we remain united with everyone working to recover from this pandemic.

Manage Your Server Remotely with IPMI

HostDime's bare metal servers come integrated with IPMI for FREE.

What is IPMI?

HostDime’s bare metal servers feature Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) so your server can be managed REMOTELY from anywhere in the world. IPMI is included at no additional charge.

IPMI, created by Supermicro, is a piece of hardware that is added directly into the server's motherboard and your client portal CORE. Unlike many server providers that require a hardware key or software, all of our motherboards include dedicated KVM-over-IP functionality for REMOTE functionality and reboot capability. Even if your server is off and/or unresponsive, you can still use IPMI to access KVM via network connection to the hardware.

How IPMI works
