Web hosting can sometimes be a source of frustration — slow websites, constant crashes, restrictive servers, and draining malicious attacks. Well, what if we were to tell you that you could get around these problems?
Yes, there’s actually an easy solution for this: a dedicated server. And guess what! we will talk about the benefits of dedicated servers.
Let’s start with what exactly it is. Well, a dedicated server is exactly as its name suggests: you have an entire server (and its resources) dedicated to just your site.
Benefits of Dedicated Servers
There are plenty of benefits to dedicated servers — especially for those who have the technical expertise and skills to fully utilize it.
Let’s take a look at the benefits.
1. All Resources Are Exclusive to Your Site
When you’re using a dedicated server, all resources — including CPU output, storage, RAM, and bandwidth — are dedicated to your site, exclusively. Since there are absolutely no other users on the server, there’s no vying for resources necessary.
What this means for you is that your site will see enhanced speed and reliability — so, better response and loading times as well as uptime. Ultimately, this can have a significant impact on things like user experience, retention and conversion rates, and search engine ranking.
2. Enhanced security for your site
One of the biggest benefits of dedicated servers is greater security. For starters, you have complete control over your site’s security. You can outfit your server with the highest level of security or simply implement the security measures of your choice.
Besides that, a dedicated server also means that your site has its own unique IP address. Unique IPs provide additional layers of security.
See, if you’re on shared hosting, you’ll have to share the same server IP address with other sites. If one of these sites is a spam site, it can easily lower the search engine ranking of the IP.
Worse, search engines can even backlist the server’s IP address. If your site is on the same server that was blacklisted, you’ll suffer the same consequences. Obviously, blacklists are not a problem for a dedicated server.
3. Control and Customization
With a dedicated server, you have absolute control over virtually every aspect of your site including both hardware and software. Basically, you can customize everything from hardware specifications to the operating system to suit your website’s needs.
Plus with control over customization, it is easier to scale your system up as needed. When your business grows or during peak periods, you can easily configure your server to meet the increased demand. Hence, you’ll have no trouble seizing new opportunities.
