Home / Our Services / Web Hosting / Dedicated Servers

In the Web hosting business, a dedicated server refers to the rental and exclusive use of a computer that includes a Web server, related software, and connection to the Internet, housed in the Web hosting company’s premises. A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc. There is also another level of dedicated or managed hosting commonly referred to as complex managed hosting.

Using a dedicated hosting service offers the benefits of high performance, security, email stability, and control. Due to the relatively high price of dedicated hosting, it is mostly used by websites that receive a large volume of traffic.

  • Dedicated! No one is competing against your website for the resources (CPU, memory, hard drive, etc). This leads to a better performance. In shared environments, providers can share the server with 100 other websites. This can greatly impact performance and responsiveness of your website.
  • Security! Has better all-around security. No other website is running on the same server as you so there’s less chance of another user tampering with your database or important files.
  • Management! The server is managed by the same firm that provides the service. Make sure to get a fully managed one.
  • Flexibility! with shared, you can’t simply install any software you need. You are bound by the fact that you share a server and if the owner of the shared refuses to install such software, you’re out of luck. Whereas on a dedicated server, you can install any software you please.
