Less Downtime Problems with Managed Hosting

Posted by Doug on May 21, 2011 in Dedicated Hosting with No Comments


One of the biggest problems with running on a shared server is that there could be a lot of downtime. This is because there are just so many other websites on the same server as you. This can cause problems due to other users going over their restricted amount of CPU usage.

Downtime is a problem, especially for business websites, and it is very important that it is limited as much as possible. This is gained through opting for managed hosting.  Since you are on a dedicated server, you will not suffer problems on your own website because of others.

However, that does not mean your website uptime will be 100 percent. You do need to bear in mind that there are possibilities there will be a problem with the hardware of the server. However, with this type of hosting, there is better support so you are sure to be kept in the loop whenever there is a problem and be told what is being done to fix it.

Dedicated Servers: Disadvantages of Cheap Hosting

Posted by Doug on February 19, 2011 in Dedicated Hosting with No Comments


Dedicated servers are deemed as the best form of cheap hosting because the client is able to use the full server that he is on. This offers a lot of benefits but at the same time there are a lot of risks possible with hosting through dedicated servers.

The main problem with dedicated servers is that the hardware is very old, which means that it will run slower than your website would on a shared server. That is even when the full server is used by a number of different types of websites. You will also usually have fewer features than you would on a shared hosting plan, which means that you could lose your site building privileges or your ability to host the number of websites that you have wanted.

You will also struggle to use your own advertisements because the dedicated server will use their own advertisements so that the loss of revenue can be generated through advertisement revenue. This could put you at a loss if this is something that you rely on.
