    Advantages of Dedicated Hosting

    If you are running a large corporate website, or a website that receives a lot of traffic, there are many advantages to purchasing a dedicated server hosting plan. Is dedicated hosting right for your website? You can use our list of important advantages below to make your decision.

    First, if you do not want to purchase your own server at your location, or if you don’t have the time or experience to operate one, a dedicated server can provide the same functionality, without the added maintenance concerns. A dedicated hosting plan is very similar to owning your own server, but you won’t have to worry about fixing it if it should go down, and you will not have to provide an always-on high-speed internet connection.

    If you don’t like cookie-cutter hosting plans, a dedicated option can provide a hosting plan that is fine-tuned to your business, not someone else’s. If you need special features or options, a dedicated server is usually the answer to getting exactly what you need and not being forced to add-on applications to a less than perfect shared hosting plan.

    In addition to having the features you need, not having to share a server with several other websites is a strong selling point for users needing a dedicated solution. In shared hosting situations, there are normally at least 10 other websites on one server, all sharing resources and disk space. If you are seeing a degradation of your website’s performance, this could be caused by another user on the server. With a dedicated server, your site is the only one that is allowed to reside on the server, leaving you full control of disk space, RAM and other important server tools.

    Security of your site is another reason to look at dedicated hosting. In a shared environment, there is always the possibility that someone else with a website on your server will find a way to crack into your account, exposing your company and your client data. This can be a major concern for companies that store customer credit card numbers in databases that reside on the server.

    If you need to upgrade your server, it is usually much easier with a dedicated option. You’ll have more control over backing up your content, and the ability to add more options and features, as well as disk space by simply upgrading your existing dedicated hosting package.

    Cost effectiveness is another important aspect of dedicated hosting. Instead of having to pay for costly add-ons, additional disk space and bandwidth, you can usually find a dedicated hosting plan that offers these features for less money than you would have to pay by adding on extras.

    Although there are many advantages to dedicated hosting, there are also some disadvantages that we will now take a look at to help you with your decision.

    Cloud hosting is beginning to take some of the shine off dedicated servers. The problem being that if a hard drive fails on a dedicated server you could be looking at some lengthy downtime which wouldn't happen if the server was virtualised.

    A Dedicated server is a physical standalone server which is allocated to a single user. Only a single user is hosted on that server. The user hosted on that server does not share his server resources with any other user. Moreover he has the freedom to install any 3rd party application like any game or any custom application which he has developed locally on the Dedicated server. The user has a root level access to his server, so he can customize the server as per his needs by changing the ports or by setting permissions on the end users. So complete customization can be achieved on Dedicated server.

    If you have huge resurce requirements, what better option than to get a dedicated server. A dedicated server offers you with the freedom of having dedicated resources, install compatible third party applications and have complete control over the server. You can remote reboot the server whenever feel ther is a need to. Having a dedicated server you get reliable services with a good uptime for your site.

    Good information about dedicated hosting. Of course, it is the costliest hosting type among all other such as shared, reseller, vps and so on. Apart from the cost, there are so many advantages that we will get out of it as you have listed above. If our site has succeeded with lot of visitors and replicated into a big website, then there is no way and we have to go with dedicated for better performance of website. Similarly, some need dedicated hosting type plan for hosting their multiple domains.
    Thanks.

    Reliability is the most important asset of another dedicated server. The user is able to optimize the page loading speed by loading the page and resource allocation server.This leads to customer satisfaction, which also increases the objectives of this site.

    Thanks for sharing this information.

    Dedicated server hosting is the best option for e-commerce websites. It is quite reliable in term of space and bandwidth. People prefer dedicated servers because of maximum server up time and quick response time.
