  • Understanding Dedicated Hosting Servers
    types of hosting involves sharing the server with other clients which reduces security and can leave your site subject to downtime because of abuse of privileges by other users A shared hosting account means you share all of the resources of the server with every member who has a site hosted there With a dedicated server you re in charge This means you will have unrestricted access to ever aspect of the server s resources and you can decide what hardware you want without worrying about disruption of other customer s plans Shared plans on a VPS do guarantee a minimum of resources will always be available to you but it does not guarantee that the resources will be split equally among the entire group of clients Having a dedicated hosting account allows you to have unlimited use of the entire server If you select a server with two processors instead of one you could have up to 8 cores at your disposal With proper allocation of the resources you can greatly improve the speed of your website s load time Having a dedicated server also allows you to have full control of the server s reliability This means that no one else s actions can affect your site The problems you may face in this area would be outside attacks from hackers Everyone on the Web is at risk of being hacked so having a dedicated server doesn t protect you from outside threats However if you do have an issue with your server you have immediate access to all of the data and files on it rather than having to make a call to customer service and have someone else check out the problem Root access to the server is only provided to dedicated and VPS hosting accounts VPS hosting only allows access to the virtual servers not the actual hardware that operates them With full root access you re directly in control of the server and you can alter its configuration to meet your personal needs This means you can host any kind of website or implement any app that will help make your life easier Root access to the server also provides stronger security and better reliability for your system As the system administrator you can set up alerts to warn of you of pending issues and then respond to them in a timely manner Dedicated hosting provides the very best security of any type of hosting account Your web hosting company can offer the very best security feature for the hardware but you have the freedom to configure it in any way you feel will be the most beneficial to you Root access is provided through remote desktop software This means you can access your server from any computer with an Internet connection and operate it just the same as if you were in the same room This allows you to easily and effectively manage your server and ensure that it is operating at optimum
