Getting your own dedicated server for your business is a great idea
if you are interested in security, being the only business on the server,
eliminating potential server problems, and have a budget that includes a
substantial monthly fee. If you have a busy commerce website and a lot of
visitors, then a dedicated server is probably your best bet, not to
mention completely secure. However if you have a smaller site, with less
traffic, and a low budget, you should wait until your budget grows as well
as your website to use a dedicated server. Consider the following points
to help you learn more about the ups and downs of dedicated server hosting.
Dedicated server hosting is beneficial because you know you are the
only one using the server and it is 100% dedicated to your website and
information. Shared web hosting is less expensive, but also less secure.
If you have your own server your information will be safe and secure and
you will not have to worry about security breaches.
Avoid server problems due to others sharing the server, submitting bad
information that affects the server, and ultimately you in a negative way.
With your own dedicated server you will only deal with your own information.
The actions of others on the server will not affect you because you are the
only one on the server.
On your dedicated server, you install and use the information and software
you need. Space is not taken up for software and programs for other users
that you do not need.
With a dedicated server you have less reliance on your Web host and as a
result you will save any delays that might occur as well as money that you
would possibly lose from being offline.
With your own dedicated server you will be able to offer support to your
clients 24/7 if you so desired. This is not an option on a shared server
and is a worthwhile benefit to many companies considering a dedicated server.
Frequently increased income is a result of using a dedicated server because
you will be able to make changes, assist clients at any time of the day or
night which means you make additional money. When you have control over your
server you put the power in your hands instead of someone elses.
A dedicated server is faster as well and your web pages will load significantly
quicker, which means people will stick around to see what your site is about.
With a shared server it might take longer for your site to load and people
wont wait for this.
The one major drawback to dedicated server hosting is the price. It is more
expensive than shared hosting and as a result not an option for many people.
