Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting is blatantly just that. It is a hosting configuration that is set for a single organization or purpose such as a website. This is the exact opposite to shared hosting, in which a server is shared among many different purposes. A dedicated server can be set up in-house or externally given as a service from a data center. Lets talk about some of the benefits.

Up-time: We live in a world where instant gratification is a must and a consumer will quickly move on to a competitor if a site is experiencing down time. Dedicated hosting ensures that the demands of customers and other business functions are met 100% of the time.

Security: Clients using a dedicated platform will have the ability to customize their own security by including their own anti-virus and firewall configurations, that are tailored and made for their own functions.

Customization: Dedicated servers grants a high level of freedom and control that other hosting options cannot give you. Ontop of being able to control your own security measures virtually everything else can be tailored to exactly the needs of the client.

Congestion: Congestion is not nearly as much of a risk when it comes to dedicated servers versus something along the lines of shared hosting. When it comes down to it if you're on your own server there will always be less of a chance of getting bogged down than if you were to be on a server shared by you and 15 other people all with heavy traffic.

Support: some dedicated services offer certain levels of support. This is highly important because most customers that use dedicated servers are hosting critical and important computer functions or websites.
