3. Dedicated hosting - Good for sites with Heavy resource Usage
A dedicated web hosting is exactly what it is – the server space is specifically set aside for you. You do not share the entire server with any other person. The organization or individual has full control of the server and can make several decisions like which operating system and hardware they want. Within the dedicated web hosting, there is a higher level referred to as complex managed hosting. This one applies to both hybrid servers, complex physical servers and virtual servers and is mainly differentiated from the standard dedicated hosting by the level of engineering and administrative support.
Dedicated web hosting is associated with benefits such as high performance, control, email stability and security. There is no other website that holds the potential to steal your resources or bring about any other issues. The fact that the whole server belongs to you further empowers you to extensively customize, including selecting your own OS as we’ve already seen.
However, the many benefits come at a cost. You must be willing to pay more in order to rent the dedicated server. Also, your technical knowledge on computer and server matters should be impressive. As much as there is high technical support from your web host, there are a number of customization that you’ll do on your own. For instance, the installation of OS is a personal task. Think about all the other tools required in running a web server, removing malware and scanning for any misconfigurations. Most organizations prefer employing IT experts to perform these functions for them but that is just additional costs incurred.
