Dedicated Servers - Advantages!

Good day guys! Have you guys ever tried to set up your own website? Are you opting for shared servers? What about dedicated servers? What is a dedicated server and what are its advantages? I am going to discuss the answers to these questions! You can find a more detailed explanation at

What is a dedicated server?
First and foremost let us define what a web server is. A web server is a computer that is capable of executing or running a program which accepts HTTP requests from clients and processes these requests and gives the resulting data to the clients computer in a form of HTML documents and linked objects. A dedicated server is a web server which is dedicated to run for a single web site only.

Advantages of a dedicated server:
1. It is very reliable and is available most of the time. Because it is a dedicated server, downtimes, traffic bursts and errors are often limited and you can be assured that your site is available 24/7.

2. Dedicated servers give you absolute control of what you want to have. If you needed a large bandwidth and disk space, you can have it because you are not sharing anything to other sites.

3. You can upgrade your server anytime without having some problems. Whether increasing your disk space or upgrading other stuffs, you have the freedom to do so and is easy to do.

4. With shared server, security measures are not that specific and are not sometimes suitable for your site's needs. But in dedicated servers, you can have a specific and more suited security for your site.

5. It is highly customizable. You can install as many software as you want and use it with ease.

Although dedicated servers are more costly than shared servers, it is more efficient and secure. If you own a large company and you need a server for your web site, I suggest you purchase dedicated servers.

God bless and keep the faith intact!
