Why you should choose a dedicated server

Investing in a dedicated server for your business is a decision which requires an investment of both time and money. If you’re looking to gain support from others with your decision to install, then you need to understand the benefits of installing a dedicated server in order to explain what a positive impact the server could bring to your business. Below we’ve listed some of the key benefits of using a dedicated server to give you an insight into the opportunities you could open up for your business.

Exclusive access

Installing a dedicated server means you have total control over your own resources, without having to worry about the activity of other users on the server impacting the speed in which it performs. Using a dedicated server gives you authority about which programs, applications, and scripts you run on the server, which means you have a greater control on the security of your online business.

Security

By using a dedicated server means you eliminate the risk of sharing your online space with spammers or malicious websites, which could harm your online information. Dedicated servers are also extremely efficient in protecting against malware and adware, which is a benefit you can present to your customers if you hold a lot of their data within your server. If you handle sensitive information within your business, there’s even more necessity for you to work from a dedicated server, to further protect the information you record from customers. Most companies will already be aware of the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) rules, which stipulates that most shared servers are not compliant with their transactions.

Grows in-line with your business

Your site will expand as your business grows and you will inevitably need extra resource and space to work from. Working on a dedicated server enables you to quickly add more space, without having to move to a new server, or, in a worst case scenario, even move to a new hosting provider. One of the key benefits then of using a dedicated server is that it has the capability to grow as your business does, with minimal impact to your day to day operations.
