When you initially start an online business, it may be the case that you don’t have a large amount of technical knowledge about your website and how it is hosted. Therefore you may take a recommendation from someone else for your web hosting, or may even just use the cheapest service. As your business grows and develops you will start to outgrow the shared web hosting you had initially as you start to require larger resources and greater security options.
A higher traffic volume means more customers will be purchasing from you and if you accept payments online you will need to ensure security measures are in place. You will also require your website to be running all day and night, as if your website is inaccessible to your customers they will move on to another website, losing you potentially valuable custom.
A dedicated server will give you greater security with additional resources belonging to you. You will be responsible for any technical problems that arise with your server, so should ensure that the hosting company you select has a reliable support team. Here at CWCS we recommend our managed service with dedicated servers to assist you with the daily operation of your server. You will have your own personal accounts manager who is available to answer any queries and give you advice when required.
Choosing a company that can give technical support is a necessity for many business owners as it not only means that your business will be giving maximum performance, but also that using a managed hosting service will leave you free to deal with other important business issues.
