A dedicated server provides you with optimal performance for all your applications because it allows your owner to have exclusive access to it and its resources. You have full control by tailoring it to fit your business, change configurations of the server, add new software and even add a higher level of security if needed.
When we lease you a dedicated server (although we lease you the server, it’s all yours to manage) it’s custom-configured to your application, e.g., website, web hosting, database, gaming and video streaming. And it can be more than one – for even better performance capabilities. If that means you’re a bigger (or rapidly growing) business, that’s all the more appealing to go with dedicated server hosting.
If you’re looking for the most power and control over your hosting environment, dedicated server hosting is for you. And, it’s also recommended that you have advanced server administrative skills to best manage your dedicated server.
A dedicated server can run any type of website. However, unless the site is mission-critical with very high traffic (or using high intensive resource applications), dedicated server hosting will provide more power, but may not be necessary. Other solutions like shared hosting, Web Hosting Plus or a VPS may be better suited for less resource-intensive needs.
Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is a means for storing data on multiple hard disks, then linking the disks so that the operating system on your server views them as a single entity. Yes, we provide RAID-1 with all of our dedicated server hosting plans.
