web hostingWhen your business needs are big and you want a completely customized solution with extensive storage and computing resources, the best option is to go for a dedicated hosting solution. Dedicated hosting is a physical server that has been fully allocated as per your needs. You have the freedom to install any components and or software that you need to host your website on it. Unlike a shared hosting service where a single server and its resources are allocated among a number of customers, a dedicated hosting means you alone have the full access to use the server and its resources.

Why go dedicated?

If you are running a high security facility where the resources need to be top grade including state of the art anti hacking tools and other safety software to be installed, or you need an option where the remote access of your server cannot be shared with other customers because of the sensitive nature of the information that is stored in there, or you need a powerful computing services and thus need a dedicated solution where the entire server’s resources will be directed to run your website only; you need a dedicated hosting solution. Most shared hosting services would run a standard software version which will be available across all customers on a shared platform. You simply cannot ask for the latest software. This is a major drawback when you are using a shared platform.

Managed or Unmanaged?

A dedicated hosting solution can be either managed or unmanaged depending upon your specific requirements. Sometimes when you need a dedicated server hosting and yet cannot afford to retain a full time dedicated server administrator to take backups, schedule maintenance and also to upgrade the server software as and when required, you can opt for a managed hosting service. The hosting company will assign a staff who will do all the necessary maintenance, period backup and upgradation of the server as and when required. The benefits are simply the cost effectiveness and yet the advantages of a dedicated service at your disposal.

Another option is to opt for an unmanaged hosting service that basically is the opposite of a managed service in the sense that you only get a server hosting space at your disposal that is dedicated to you. All other maintenance, installation of required software, periodic backup and upgradation has to be taken care of by you.

What you need to know

When selecting a dedicated server, make sure that you are perfectly aware of exactly what type of server composition you need. This in turn depends on what your website is going to be all about. If you need to run a file sharing website, then you need a server with massive storage. Same goes for a video sharing website; however a video sharing website may need additional components to be installed manually. Plus it needs massive processing power to accommodate several hundred users at a time accessing the website, uploading or viewing videos.

When selecting a dedicated hosting service provider, find out more about their services like storage space, bandwidth, RAM, processor speeds, backup technology and also the power backups that they provide. There is a fine line between 99.99% and 100% uptime guarantee and that can make all the difference between your site going down at the slightest of problems and staying online irrespective of the most critical of power or infrastructural failures. In order to avoid dependency on a single physical server, cloud hosting is the ideal solution you should look for. Referring online review sites like Cloud hosting reviews can be helpful in finding a reliable dedicated cloud hosting provider for your website.
