The latest technology, always

Migrate to a new server in minutes using the iWeb Control Center. That means your configurations, data and even your WAN IPs migrated to a new server, with no hassle, in just a few clicks.

Virtualization benefits

The Smart Layer® is a single, portable virtual server on your own dedicated server. Please note that you can't perform further virtualization on a dedicated server with Smart Layer®.

No sharing resources

You get all the server's power, bandwidth and storage - there's no sharing resources. So you get full, dedicated power with the extra Smart Layer® functionality and easy migration.

iWeb Control Center

The extra functionality, quick commands, LAN management and server information is all via the Control Center, an easy-to-use interface with integrated support that you'll only find with iWeb.

Like all our dedicated servers, dedicated servers with the Smart Layer® are perfect for secure, high-traffic and CPU-intensive applications like:

  • Web hosting and eCommerce
  • Mail and internal applications
  • Database servers
  • File storage
  • Video and media streaming
  • Cloud applications

Please note that a small portion of server RAM is reserved for the Smart Layer™.

SuperSmart™ upgrade

Upgrade to SuperSmart™ and you can create and manage a high-speed, unmetered LAN. You also get a firewall to protect your servers, and unmetered bandwidth for local and public traffic.

Unmetered traffic

Unmetered inbound and outbound (I/O) traffic from the public network (internet) lets you serve lots of users, fast.

With your 100Mbps connection, you can achieve a lot of data transfer and website page loads without having to watch your usage.

Private LANs

Servers can be grouped in private local area networks (LANs) called Smart Groups used for server clustering.

Grouped servers can see and communicate with each other while being invisible from the other servers on the network.

Unmetered LAN

A 1Gbps connection lets servers exchange data at blazing speeds without going through the public network.

Local data transfer is not metered or limited - great for backups or connecting a separate database and web servers.


The SuperSmart™ upgrade includes a firewall that acts as a filter between your servers and the Internet.

A firewall is the first line of server security. It blocks malicious access attempts, allowing only legitimate traffic to access the server.
