Your Business Requirements Dictate Your Server Choice

Thursday 14 May 2009


As with every other aspect of a business, the specific web hosting package needed totally depends on size of the business and the amount of web traffic handled daily. An entry-level business will be comfortable with shared hosting services, until it expands. Dedicated servers are for big business as well as intensive web traffic, such as experienced by gaming sites.

The amount of disk space and bandwidth needed will determine when it is time to upgrade to dedicated servers. It is logical that dedicated servers will be more costly as it incorporates many extra features, plus larger disk space and far more bandwidth.

With dedicated servers there are choices as well. Depending on exactly what the business needs are, a company could opt for entry-level package dedicated servers or the more costly larger dedicated servers.

Growing Needs

CWCS Managed Hosting offers both managed and unmanaged hosting packages within the dedicated servers range. Managed hosting is often cheaper than having to maintain an in-house IT professional to manage and maintain the dedicated servers of a business. CWCS offer additional services for all dedicated servers such as weekly and daily backup. On offer is additional port monitoring, firewalls and total server management.

A client also has options such as web development and security maintenance available from CWCS. The only disadvantage with dedicated servers that concern clients is the higher costs but the extra investment is worth it for the reliability and more.

The cost is offset by the huge benefits for the client’s business when the needs have outgrown shared server capabilities. There are also the cost-effective benefits of managed hosting instead of the expenses involved with maintaining and troubleshooting dedicated servers.
