Why Dedicate to a Dedicated Server?

By Erin Monda, TMCnet Contributor

When searching for a new web host or setting up a new website, there are a number of important considerations you should keep in mind.

While starting the web hosting selection process, you should consider whether or not to choose a dedicated server or a shared one. Dedicated servers offer greater control and better security – because it will be the only website living on the server. This equates to priority service from hosting providers.

And dedicated server hosting is the optimal solution when planning a more complicated website

However, dedicated servers are often more expensive than the alternatives and require technical knowledge and expertise to maintain. If you lack that expertise or do not have appropriate IT professionals in your organizations, you may want to consider a managed hosting alternative, where the hosting provider takes on the responsibility of managing the site for you.

Despite the drawbacks of cost and complexity, dedicated servers offer enormous benefits to businesses.

As an example, the dedicated servers offered by Hostway (News - Alert) offer you full root access, with the additional benefit of leading network infrastructure and superior connectivity. Customers can count on ultimate performance and speed.

For those who feel like they would prefer a managed hosting setup, Hostway also offers convenient server management tools and superior 24x7 live technical support for an all-in-one managed hosting solution!

And, if their available product configurations don’t meet your needs?

The company will construct a custom solution that will.

Now, while Hostway isn’t the only web hosting provider out there, there are a few distinctions to consider. For example, some companies carry a “Microsoft (News - Alert) Certified Gold Partner” designation, which means they have the infrastructure necessary to support the Microsoft windows hosting environment.

As Microsoft hypervisor-based server virtualization technology makes it easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization, this is yet another item to remember!
