Server Differences

A Virtual Server resides on a computer that also hosts other Virtual Server accounts. his means that the computer’s hardware resources and associated bandwidth are shared among multiple sites. A Virtual Server is an excellent solution for small to medium sized businesses that want to create a powerful Internet presence. By contrast, a dedicated server is an “industrial-strength” system of hardware, operating system software, and web server software which you control and to which you have exclusive access. All of the server’s powerful resources and bandwidth are allocated entirely to your Internet site, enabling you to offer features and service levels to your customers, employees, and suppliers that go beyond the standard capabilities of a Virtual Server.

Advantages

A dedicated server gives you the ability to build an interactive web site capable of handling millions of hits per day. This is the ideal solution for high traffic sites that have high bandwidth and server requirements. On-line malls, high-profile software repository sites, and large e-commerce businesses generally require at least one dedicated server to maintain top performance levels.

When to Upgrade

You should consider migrating to a dedicated server when your Virtual Server traffic grows to more than 100,000 hits per day. When traffic reaches this level, the performance of a Virtual Server degrades and a dedicated server becomes necessary to ensure availability and performance.

Hardware Ownership

We own and maintain all of the server hardware. You benefit from this because if a piece of hardware fails we have the spare parts on hand along with the knowledge of the configuration to repair any problems immediately. This provides you with complete administrative control of the Server without worrying about hardware problems and support issues.

System Administration

With a Dedicated Server, you have total administrative control of the server, as if you were hosting it on your very own Server at your location. This means that you have the flexibility to configure the system and the applications to meet your unique business requirements. If you should need assistance with system administration, our expert engineers can provide you with remote “eyes and hands” support on a consulting basis. With these Dedicated Servers you do not have root access to the Server. You are provided the same shell access as a Virtual Server, however you are the exclusive user of the Server.
