What is a Dedicated Server?

0

A dedicated server is a server that only hosts your websites. One of the downsides to running a website on a shared server platform is you can sometimes be sharing the server with hundreds of other sites. If the server scripts running on one of those sites takes the server down, your website will go down through no fault of your own. With a dedicated server it is yours and yours alone. All the resources such as processing power, memory and disk space are yours and will never be shared with anyone else. Having your very own dedicated server gives you the ultimate piece of mind.

For sites requiring more power than what normal hosting can provide, a dedicated server is usually the better route to take. Having a dedicated server is a completely different from normal virtual (shared) hosting. The server is now fully yours – the entire hard disk and all the bandwidth allocated can be used as you want. There is no longer any CPU Usage restriction. If you need, you can use up 100% CPU utilization. You can put all your sites on this one server without having to worry about paying hosting fees for each site added. But along with these new liberations come new responsibilities. Most important is to ensure that you server is always patched and up to date. There are new updates being constantly released, which if not applied to your server could let a hacker could gain inner access to your server.

Dedicated Hosting reduces your need to share hardware or software with other websites on a server. Users get the option to install which software they want and also provides secure environment for their site. If you compare shared hosting with a dedicated environment, Dedicated Hosting offers more reliability on a server in a much secured manner.I found this type of dedicated hosting packages at Thewebpole.com  .It has six plans which has more features..you can choose any of them..

I think that a dedicated server is a server that only hosts your websites. One of the downsides of running a website on a shared server platform is that you can sometimes share the server with hundreds of other sites. I work with one company that provides a quality product at a reasonable price. Their support staff has been polite and professional if I had a problem, that being said, I’ve had a problem with constant contact charging a client and have contacted support in order to attempt to resolve.
