With the emergence of Internet-based business and marketing, the purpose of having a website for the business became inevitable. The buzz word “web hosting” which flourished throughout the last decade, became an umbrella term for hosting your websites, applications, emails and other services that are specific to your business or for the community of other users online.
The term “web hosting” is broadly classified to shared hosting, virtual private servers, dedicated servers, cloud hosting etc. based on the resource required, type of applications you use etc. The companies who look for more power and control over their hosted websites or applications will need the dedicated hosting.
Let’s see some of the advantages of dedicated server hosting over others.
Advantages of dedicated server hosting
1. Dedicated resources
When you buy a dedicated server plan, the resources like CPU, Memory, Disks are only for your use. i.e you get the full resources of the single server. Unlike shared hosting, you may not have to worry about other website’s or shared customers clogging all your resources, leaving your applications or websites slow or unavailable. Many dedicated hosting plans come with unmonitored bandwidth added to dedicated network port which is really helpful when you have a very busy website.
2. Enhanced performance and security
Since all the resources are only for you, you don’t have to worry about malicious activities by other users. A certain level of security is offered as no one else has access to your server except your company and the providers that offer your dedicated server hosting. Further, Many providers come with in-house hardware firewalls and DDOS protection systems, which keeps your business from prying eyes on the internet. The dedicated hosting provides a very secure environment especially for the e-commerce business or anything related to sensitive transactions.
The dedicated server hosting allows a client to choose the hardware they want to run their business applications on. The clients have the flexibility to select the CPU model, amount of RAM and disk space they need, choice of operating systems and other software. With the administrative / root access, there are no boundaries on what you can install and on the custom configurations.
4. Dedicated IP address
Unlike shared hosting, the dedicated servers come with the dedicated block of IP address for your use. These unique IPs are really important for SEO, SSL, financial transactions and boost up your organic search engine ranks. Your websites ranks can be pushed down when your neighbors use the same IP for spamming or adult websites in case of shared IP space.
5. No purchase or maintenance overheads
When you have no time or money to invest and manage on-premise infrastructure, the dedicated hosting is the best plan you got. The providers handle the cost of building and maintaining server equipment. This improves the return on investment as we only just rent the infrastructure needed.
While providing powerful features enough room to grow, managing the dedicated servers require some level of technical knowledge about hardware and OS. Also, the issues caused by the hardware components can add downtimes in your business. The dedicated hosting is costlier than all other options.
