Dedicated hosting is a type of hosting service where a certain server is provided specifically for a single client who can basically control and access it just like having it in his/her home. In such a case, one client pays entirely for the service, and the provider will be providing everything needed, such as the server machine, software, and the operating system needed, along with a stable connectivity to run these servers 24/7.
If you’re running multiple businesses or even personal websites, his environment is highly recommended for you. This promises total control of their websites, plenty of disk space, and high volumes of traffic. You can count this as a way out of the common shared hosting service, where you will be facing competition in terms of the disk space, bandwidth, and connectivity along with the other customers who share the same server with you.
Running a huge business, you do not have the time to manage the site physically yourself, a fully managed dedicated server is for you. Here, the servers will be kept and monitored by the provider within their own datacenter round the clock, along with backups, software updates, firewall, and other security management. They will troubleshoot and fix any problem that occur, and offer you support every hour of the day for the entire year.
This is not offered in the typical shared hosting, and though this is very expensive, it gives you the capability to focus on more important tasks of your business, especially if you don’t have an IT around, thus makes you save more time, money, and effort.
While offering the physical resources you might need and remote administration access to your server, you will be the one to take care of it. You have to maintain it, do the needed software updates, and troubleshoot – meaning you need to either have the technical skills yourself or hire a server administrator. This might come in cheaper than the managed hosting, however, hiring a server administrator is costly too, and might compromise the speed and management of your websites in case that person quits, and you will have to go through hiring another tech again.
Considering all of this, it may be in fact better to consider managed hosting.Everything is handled by the provider – even the bandwidth requirements are automatically adjusted. This gives you the time to focus on the more important things – your business and the content of your website
