Why  you need a Dedicated Server?

Most of time you are wondering what dedicated servers are for, and whether you need one. Or sometimes  you already know you need a complete dedicated server, but are stuck when it comes to choosing a best host.

Whichever way, here are a few guidelines that may help you in making your decisions:

  1. Do you need a Dedicated Server?

When you renting server space from a host, you basically have two options – to rent shared (VPS) server space or to rent a dedicated server. With a shared hosting environment (VPS Hosting), your web-site shares server space with other web-sites.  If you rent a dedicated server, on the other hand, you get an entire server and network connection to yourself.

VPS servers are less costly to rent than dedicated servers. They usually require a lower level of technical skills too, because the host does most of the server administration. This is why VPS servers are usually the best choice for entry level web-sites or for small businesses whose web-sites do not have high traffic levels.

While VPS servers are the most cost-effective option for small web-sites, they are not necessarily a good option for large, “mission-critical” or high traffic websites. For these a dedicated server may well be necessary.

Dedicated servers are more expensive to rent than VPS servers, and they also require a higher level of technical skill to operate depend on which OS you want recommended. However, if you are making thousands of $$ a day from e-commerce and your business would fail if the server went down for a day or more, then you should seriously consider renting a dedicated server.

Dedicated Server Response Times and Site Traffic Management

The server response times on a VPS  hosting arrangement depend on what is happening with the other sites hosted on the server. Your own server response time will be affected by service interruptions on another site – for instance, if another site suddenly receives an unexpectedly high level of traffic. These interruptions will be outside your control on a VPS server. With a dedicated server, on the other hand, you alone are responsible for managing, and planning for, traffic levels and other events that may affect server response times.

Flexibility and Software

With VPS servers, you will have limited access to the operating system resource, and software applications will be limited to those, which are provided by the host. If you want to be able to install run your own advanced, customized ecommerce, ERP, POS, Gaming or database applications you will probably need a dedicated server.

Scalability

As your site bigger, your traffic bigger and your applications become more demanding, you will need to upgrade your server. If you are using a VPS server, your upgrade options will be limited. Your host will usually allow you to increase the amount of disk space, RAM, Bandwidth  available to your site — but that is all. When you are using a dedicated server, you can do all of these things like RAM, HDD, Bandwidth or other extra things.

Security

Information on a VPS  server is likely to be less secure than information on a dedicated server. A dedicated server can also be provided with its own firewall. If you are storing highly sensitive information on your server, this increased security will obviously be a high priority.

  1.  So Choosing a Dedicated Server Host ?

So, assuming you really do need a dedicated server, how then do you go about choosing the right host? Here are a few of the other part you will need to consider in making this choice.

Platform

Obviously, your choice of platform will depend to a large extent on the types of applications you are using and the skills and knowledge you already possess. The two most well known operating systems are Windows NT and Linux (which includes the Debian, Centos, and Solaris platforms). Windows NT, the more expensive option is regarded as the most user friendly and easiest to install, especially for those who use Windows on their PCs. Linux  is cheaper, but there is usually a much steeper learning curve for those who are not familiar with the more arcane Linux environment.

Data Transfer

Most dedicated server providers will allow you to choose your level of data transfer, usually in gigabytes per month. Usually, you will be paying for this, so you do not want to purchase more data transfer than is realistically needed. This can always be increased as needed.

Data Backup

If you run a site, which is constantly being updated, you will need to back it up frequently. This can be a hassle. Many dedicated hosting providers will provide a back up service for you – usually for an added fee, but the convenience may be worth it.

Monitoring

Your server will need to be monitored constantly to prevent service interruptions. Check to see that your host can provide such monitoring, and how frequently it is done (eg every 5 mins), and what measures they use to deal with problems, which are detected.
