A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else.
A Dedicated server is a good choice for those who have technical background and can manage/configure the server on their own. Yet, the lack of technical skills should not be an obstacle, since we offer different types of Dedicated server management: User-Responsible, Basic, Complete. Root access, provided with a Dedicated server, is a huge benefit if you need to make some server modifications.
If you have a website that receives massive volume of traffic, Dedicated server is the best choice. If you have a Shared hosting account and you reach the resource limits, the upgrade to the next available plan is required, as this is the only method to add more resources to your account. If you have a Dedicated server, you may order more bandwidth for an additional price.
A Dedicated server is dedicated solely to one user, and that is the main reason why it costs more. The basic Namecheap Shared hosting account costs $30.88 per year, while the basic Dedicated server’s cost would be $82.88 per month. So, before making a final decision, ask yourself these questions:
- What kind of control over the hosting account is required?
- What’s the daily and monthly traffic you expect on your website?
- What are your security requirements?
- What’s your monthly budget?
And finally, Dedicated hosting plans are ideal for large organizations or websites with much higher traffic. The clients get full control of the server which allows them to configure it to meet their own needs. The dedicated plans also come in managed and unmanaged forms where the hosting center can manage the server for the client in case of any problems.
