Dedicated hosting services are some of the most expensive in the long line of hosting services available. Individuals pay a premium for this type of hosting service for many reasons, including the dedicated server’s ability to be modified, and its security, reliability, and speed.
Dedicated servers can be described as client specific, meaning one client is assigned to each server. Since clients are assigned to their own individual servers, they can modify the server at any time, typically without requesting permission from the host. Modifications are needed when new software or hardware must be added to the server.
Clients on a dedicated server are given full root access, allowing them to control the server through a control panel. Access to the control panel is password protected, ensuring no other client can go onto the server and manipulate or steal data. Dedicated servers have become highly sought after by those with sensitive and private information, such as businesses that deal with credit card numbers and other types of financial information.
Dedicated servers have also made a name for themselves when it comes to security. It is very hard for a dedicated server to be breached by an outsider. Firewalls and security scans are routinely updated and run on the servers. Clients are free to add additional layers of security to their servers if they wish. Due to the fact that dedicated servers are not shared, clients can feel secure.
Reliability is a main selling point for dedicated servers. Each dedicated server, depending on which plan is chosen, is allotted a specific amount of RAM, disk space, and bandwidth. Clients do not share any space on their servers with anyone else. In fact, a dedicated server can be rebooted at anytime without affecting other clients or servers, making them even more reliable.
Dedicated servers run at high speeds as well, especially when compared to shared servers. Dedicated server clients only put the hardware and software that they need on the server. Not having to deal with other clients’ unnecessary programs significantly increases server speed. This type of server is capable of allocating more space in terms of RAM and bandwidth, making the rate at which data is transferred, sent, received, and stored much faster.
These characteristics are also what make dedicated servers some of the most expensive to use. However, Hostgator clients need not worry so much about the cost thanks to frequent promotions run by Hostgator.
