Shared web hosting is a perfectly adequate solution for a new business or a business that has a limited amount of daily traffic, but as your business expands and starts to experience increased web traffic, you may start to worry about security issues and extra costs for higher data transfer. As you are allocated a limited amount of resources with shared web hosting you will have to pay extra for higher usage until the facility is no longer suitable for your business.
Dedicated server hosting is a solution to consider for any business with high traffic as well as security issues. For instance, any business who accepts payments on the website or who collects sensitive data from customers must be aware of security risks. Under the Data Protection Act you have a duty of care to your customers to keep their confidential information secure. With a dedicated server you have additional resources and high security as you have complete control of the server.
Upgrading to a dedicated server can sometimes require greater technical knowledge which can pose a problem if you are not an expert in the relevant IT issues. Here at CWCS we offer twenty four hour support as well as your own personal account manager. They are available for all your technical problems and also give advice when required.
Admittedly, upgrading to a dedicated server is quite a large step to take, but if your business is expanding significantly you will need the security of your website being available at all times.
