Frequently Asked Questions
Below are common questions related to Dedicated Hosting.
With dedicated hosting, you get complete control of the server and everything on it. From OS to apps to storage to security, you make the decisions about what’s on the server, what isn’t and what else you need.
Dedicated plans are more expensive. It makes sense; since you’re getting an entire server to yourself, the cost is higher than shared or VPS options.
But this cost is often offset by the benefits offered with a dedicated plan. For example, if a security issue is introduced by another client in a shared or VPS environment, it could bring down the entire server — your site included. Dedicated servers, meanwhile, are naturally insulated from this risk.
Dedicated server plans are often worth the cost if your priorities are speed and security. For example, if you’re running an e-commerce site that needs superior performance and secure checkouts to drive consistent sales, dedicated hosting is a great option.
When it comes to dedicated hosting providers, reputation and reliability matter. Before purchasing any dedicated plan, do your research — read reviews from current and previous clients, and ask questions about server uptime, SLAs and what happens if service levels aren’t met.
