We got quite a lot inquiries asking how soon can the new ordered dedicated server be delivered, In most of the case, delivering a dedicated server during business hours would go through the following steps:
In step #2, if we manage to find out matched spec, step #1 to #3 would be completed within ~30 minutes; If we cannot find matched spec, we might need to do some hardware replacement, or maybe we have run out of stock for the certain spec, we would check with the customer and see if we need to order from our hardware vendor or cancel the order & fully refund.
(* In the last 6 months, we upgraded the hardware for free when the spec customer ordered was out of stock.)
As to step #4, it really depends on the requirements for example, Linux or Windows, partition requirement, 3rd software installation etc. For your reference, a minimal Linux OS installation would take ~15 minutes and a minimal Windows OS would take ~45 minutes.
After OS installation is completed, our NOC engineer will test the connection and verify, if everything is working perfect, the order will be delivered.
Keep in mind that orders deployment during holidays would be delayed, we thank you for the understanding!
