What Does Dedication Mean To Your Business

By CertifiedHosting 12/14/2010

In life, it’s all about dedication. We seek employees who will be dedicated to their jobs, partners who will be dedicated to our partnership, and we seek dedication in our family life. We even seek dedication from things that we use every day. Essentially, we seek dedication everywhere. So why shouldn’t the same apply to the tools and equipment we use to do our job, run our business, or power our websites and web based applications?

Dedication helps focus all of your resources to achieve a task without dispersing your attention and resources over millions of things. When it comes to your website, you want to focus on managing your content without having to wonder whether you have the necessary resources, technology, and support  to keep your website and content available to your clients and customers at all times. If you are at a point where your web hosting is no longer performing the way it should, it’s time to think about moving to a dedicated hosting server solution that will meet your needs.

The key word here is dedicated, not shared or semi, but dedicated. That’s right, an entire server dedicated to your business. This means your dedicated server will not be shared with anyone. With a dedicated server, you no longer have to worry about whether you have enough resources available to power your websites and applications. Dedicated servers also give you all the bandwidth and disk space you need to serve your visitors and clients. Plus, you get full control over your server so you can enjoy the security and uptime dedicated servers provide.

Key advantages of getting a dedicated server

If you need reliability, security, availability and a lot of resources, you will substantially benefit from choosing dedicated server hosting. Dedicated servers are more flexible than shared web hosting as you get full control over the server, including choice of an operating system, hardware, software, and numerous other options that will enhance your website and web based applications. With dedicated server hosting, all you need to manage is your website since server administration will be provided by your dedicated hosting provider.

Investing in dedicated server hosting will also save you time, money, and resources by outsourcing the required hardware, data transfer, support, security, necessary upgrades, and monitoring to dedicated server specialists. Having your own internal IT department will require technical and human resources, which can often be too challenging and expensive. Dedicated server hosting gives you access to state-of-the-art data centers that provide a reliable infrastructure and 24/7 expert support.  As technology standards evolve, dedicated servers will make hardware and software upgrades, data migration, and resource additions a lot easier for you. Additionally, dedicated servers give you the ability to customize your hardware needs based on your project requirements.

Managed dedicated servers vs. unmanaged dedicated servers

Dedicated hosting comes in two flavors – managed and unmanaged. Both define the level of support you receive from the dedicated server hosting provider. Unmanaged means you get little or no involvement from your dedicated server provider. With unmanaged dedicated server hosting, you perform all required maintenance, upgrades, patches, and security. Managed includes monitoring, software updates, security patches and operating system upgrades – all done by managed dedicated host experts. Managed dedicated server hosting can be beneficial as you do not need to have the expertise required to manage your server, saving you time and money.

With managed dedicated hosting you can partner with a company devoted to servers that provide the latest hardware, reliable support, and infrastructure as well as an insider’s view on technology trends.  The primary advantage of managed hosting is measured in terms of service and support. Choosing the right dedicated hosting provider can help you maintain and secure your IT equipment more effectively. In fact, latest shifts in IT have moved in favor of managed dedicated services.
