What is Dedicated hosting ?
Dedicated hosting is a term used to describe web hosting packages that provide a dedicated server with dedicated resources to a single client. Dedicated hosting plans are ideal for very large number of visitors.
Dedicated hosting is an Internet hosting option in which a physical server is dedicated to a single customer. The customer has complete control over the machine, so they can optimize it for their unique requirements, including performance and security. Dedicated hosting is synonymous with dedicated hosting service, managed hosting service and dedicated server.
With a dedicated server, you’re able to choose the equipment, including the amount and type of RAM, the size and type of hard drive and the processor, used in the server. Further, all of the server’s resources are allocated to your site and they aren’t shared with any others.
The main disadvantage of dedicated hosting is that you lose the basic support that NetHosting provides to shared hosting customers. When you move to dedicated hosting, you can make endless modifications to your server. Unfortunately, our main technical support department can’t train on every possible modification of a dedicated hosting server. This will likely be the case at any major hosting company.
