Dedicated Web Hosting

Dedicated web hosting is expensive and constitutes the major drawback to creating a web presence for business. However, this is quickly being overcome powered by the constant and steady growth of the dedicated web hosting industry. As more individuals and businesses get into dedicated web hosting, the costs rapidly go down. In the meantime, competition drives up the service level and perks being offered. This trend will continue as more and more small and medium sized businesses work to increase their presence on the internet. The number of web hosts will also grow powered by increased demand for their services.

The two major advantages include stability and control. Another advantage would be security. This is because a web administrator has more control over a dedicated server, which is an innately more secure operation. Security comes from knowing exactly what hardware, software and applications are installed, as well as the number of fingers involved in stirring the pot, so to speak. The fewer, the better.  Having this knowledge allows the system administrator to make the decisions necessary to keep the operation function at maximum configuration.

Another major benefit of dedicated web hosting is reliability, which comes from being able to optimize page loads by playing with page load speed and overall server resource allocation. These things usually translate into customer or client satisfaction as well as a more successful bottom line, and bigger web presence.  There are some downsides, however. The aforementioned cost of dedicated web hosting, while getting better, is still a negative situation. Dedicated web hosting is still much more expensive when compared to shared server hosting or even virtual hosting, to the tune of hundreds of dollars per month. But despite the huge cost outlays many businesses justify the use of dedicated servers through cost analysis, which shows the benefits of dedicated web hosting always win out.

Another disadvantage is in not having a system administrator who has the time or skills that it takes to monitor, install, upgrade and configure programs, or add sites, or deal with potential hacks or other troubleshooting necessities. However, if your business can maintain dedicated web hosting then it becomes a win-win situation for your business. No need to worry about server overload, malicious scripts or too many applications installed by other users in a shared system, because a dedicated system is a secure and reliable environment. In a dedicated web hosting system only applications and software that pertains to the major hosting is allowed.

In dedicated web hosting, dedicated servers allow for very quick page load time, which increases the probability that potential clients will stay engaged with your website, turning them into paying customers. Quick page loading also enhances company image and generates returning customers and increases word of mouth business, as well.
