Hi, this is probably a stupid question but, can a dedicated server have a VPS Optimized logo at the top?

We are currently paying for a dedicated server from a hosting company and since we are a micro corporations we don't really have much of an IT Department or anything like that so we have no idea how to check to make sure its a dedicated server. The logo at the top seemed like a giveaway that it isn't though.

If it can is there another way to tell if its dedicated or vps?

I am completely clueless on even the basics of working with a server. All I do is ftp files and create html/css/js/miva content. Is there a resource you guys could recommend that would enhance my knowledge of this subject? Preferably free but paid isn't a big deal. I'd like to learn more about this so I can make sure I'm not getting scammed now or in the future and could take advantage of any tools available.

Thanks

Tried it

I tried to submit a support ticket but I got the error "An Ip Address that is/was Licensed with cPanel. '67.225.243.60' does not have a valid cPanel product license!"

The license is provided through the host so I have no idea what's going on with it.

Are you sure that 67.225.243.60 is the publicly visible static IP address of the server? Perhaps it is a different IP address?

You can visit verify.cPanel.net to see if an IP address is licensed (assuming it's the publicly visible static IP address of the server, and not just a dedicated IP address provided to you by a hosting provider).

Should Be

It should be correct. That's what I get when I ping the server and the site comes up when I put it in the url.

A server can have several IP addresses. Try running the following SSH command, it will return the publicly visible static IP address of the server (not just an individual website).

Code:
curl http://cpanel.net/showip.cgi
