Get Ready Nerds! Certified Hosting Adds One Click SSL Certificates to Nerd Unlimited Hosting Plans

What keeps your potential customers from clicking that magic Complete Order button? If you ever wondered that, you should know the top reason is trust, or better said, lack thereof. People are wary of putting their hard-earned money on the line, and they have every reason to be! Phishing schemes, hacked websites, key-loggers, identity theft – the darker side of the Internet is more visible than ever. You can’t blame people for not handing over their money, even if you’re the most honest person in the world. Would you trust a complete stranger with your credit card?

Just like in real-life we rely on IDs and other official documents to see if a person is trustworthy, the Internet has  a mechanism for proving that a website is genuine – SSL certificates.

Customize your Dedicated Hosting Experience at Certified Hosting

If you are interested in dedicated hosting, you probably already know that dedicated web servers provide the best combination of powerful hardware, high availability, and stability.

One other great advantage of using a dedicated server is the level of control provided by dedicated hosting. With cheaper solutions, you are limited to an environment that is shared with dozens, even hundreds of other clients. Your access to server resources is often unpredictable, making it difficult to scale your website or tweak it to perform well during traffic spikes. In contrast, dedicated servers are not limited in any way – you control everything, from the processor that powers your machine to the most advanced system settings.

When choosing a dedicated hosting solution, it’s always a good idea to plan ahead before making any commitment. Especially with the hardware side, it’s difficult and costly to make changes to your dedicated host once the server goes live. To help you choose or configure a dedicated web host, Certified Hosting has published an article called Dedicated Server Customization in Three Steps. The article will guide you through the most important features that you should consider when choosing a custom dedicated web server, including hardware components, operating system, and managed services.
