Websites tend to grow and change in tandem with the site owner’s organisation or business.
A website might start out as a 3-page marketing platform, but can, over the years develop in to a fully-fledged large-scale site, perhaps including video, e-commerce, blogs, and a forum.
When a site reaches that kind of size the dedicated server web hosting option is a serious option.
A dedicated server is a server entirely given over to hosting your individual site and there’s usually a choice to make between the Linux and Windows operating systems.
There are sometimes good reasons for choosing a Windows dedicated server.
First, the server itself comes loaded with Windows, an operating system which is familiar to users the world over, and so there will be less of a learning curve when managing the system, installing updates and so on.
Furthermore your windows server will come pre-installed with an entire web application framework, called .NET, which will give your software developers a head-start when building applications such as forums and picture galleries. .NET is both powerful and scaleable.
With Windows dedicated server, there’s also support for the database systems which underpin your site, whether MS SQL or Access.
If your website designer prefers working with any of the above tools then they will be most comfortable working on a Windows dedicated server.
