Dedicated hosting is used for high traffic internet usage. Sites which support over 100,000 hits a month should be hosted on a dedicated host. In doing so, your site will continue to be dependable and provide instant results while users navigate your site. Select the banner for more information on dedicated servers and how you can get one today.
If your website is collecting more than 100,000 users a month, you have a great opportunity to generate revenue which offsets the costs of dedicated hosting. It also reduces expensive overhead often found with a general web hosting account and high volumes of traffic.
There are two types of dedicated servers, regular and Virtual.
Normal Dedicated Server
A normal dedicated server reserves hardware and bandwidth for your website. You can do everything a normal web hosting account offers but no one else uses the connection, hardware or software on the server.
Virtual Dedicated Server
A virtual dedicated server offers the illusion of a single server although the resources from many servers are shared in what is called a “time-sharing model”. A time-sharing model shares hardware resources but provides a higher level of security since the individual virtual servers are isolated from each other. This type of model is also used in cloud hosting where the unused resources from many servers are shared by all.
Benefits of a Dedicated Server:
- Supports High Traffic Volume
- High speed bandwidth
- Hosting management tools
- Quality support
- High Security
The drawback is the expense. However, as I mentioned before, if you have high internet traffic you have the potential to justify the cost for performance and it’s well worth the investment.
