What is Dedicated Hosting?
Dedicated hosting is a form of web hosting where an entire physical server or a cluster of servers is allocated to a single user. The client has uninterrupted control over the resources (storage, memory, bandwidth) and can customize the components according to their requirements. The web hosting partner is responsible for the entire infrastructure, including hardware, security, and support. Dedicated servers are ideal for websites with heavy traffic, which is far beyond the scope of Shared Hosting and Virtual Private Servers. They're expensive compared to most other hosting solutions.
What are the benefits of Dedicated Hosting?
Among the key benefits of dedicated hosting, high performance, better security, hardware flexibility, and total control stand out. Dedicated servers are more reliable and stable compared to other forms of hosting as they do not split resources among multiple users. They provide enhanced security over SSL and FTP and offer 24/7 technical assistance. Dedicated servers are flexible, which translates to greater freedom of customization. Create a bespoke server with storage, memory, processing capability, bandwidth, and OS of your choice. Dedicated servers are hassle-free since the web host is in charge of maintenance and upkeep.
What are the differences between VPS and dedicated server?
A Virtual Private Server is a step-up from Shared Hosting. Although users still share a single server, the resources are pre-allocated. For instance, if a server has 8GB RAM and your VPS dedicates 1GB to your website, that entire memory is at your disposal round the clock, irrespective of whether you use it. A Dedicated Server, on the other hand, caters to one client at a time. So, instead of getting just a part of the server, you have the entire resource pool at your disposal. Dedicated Servers offer clients complete control over the hardware and software in use.
How many websites can I host on a dedicated server?
Theoretically, you can host an unlimited number of websites on Dedicated Servers. In reality, however, certain factors determine the maximum cap. HTML-based static websites don't consume many resources and you could host close to 500 websites on a single Dedicated Server. On the other hand, CRM-based websites need higher memory and storage capacity to function since they need to process MySQL database requests much quickly. Bandwidth plays an important role in accommodating websites. So, you need to keep increasing the hardware capabilities of a bare metal server to host an unlimited number of websites.
