Dedicated servers cost is a definite point for consideration, for the clients. Dedicated server cost is generally on the higher side, in comparison with shared hosting service, as because the client is entitled to the complete hosting service of a full dedicated physical server machine, in a dedicated server hosting service. The client leases an entire server, with its total computing resources and software applications, in a dedicated server hosting. No other user is allowed any access to the dedicated server and share its hosting service and computing resources. Therefore, the dedicated server cost is higher than other forms of hosting services.
The reasons behind the dedicated server cost-
A dedicated server is dedicated to a single user. Dedicated server hosting service is often opted by those clients, who are super big or mega business organisations. These include the ever growing and developing e commerce organisations also. Their business web sites have the super heavy traffic of web sites visitors, who number in millions, in a day. These business web sites also are under the compulsion of running round the clock, without any risk of stopping for a moment. The web sites, hosted by dedicated server hosting also must have record uptime and downtime. Any fault, in any of the above-mentioned conditions, can be enough to cause very serious damage to the business of the client organisation.
Dedicated server hosting provides complete control over the dedicated server to the client, who can configure the server, according to the business needs of the business organisation. The client is also provided with supreme flexibility, who can add or remove software applications as per the client’s business requirements. This provides a unique cost effectiveness to the user of dedicated server hosting, as it is always a pay-per-use basis.
The quantum of hosting services provided by a dedicated server hosting justify the cost, that is related to the service of dedicated server. The cost of dedicated server may be bit on the higher side, when compared with other hosting services, but no other hosting service is capable of providing the quality of hosting service, which is provided by a dedicated server. Dedicated hosting service is the only hosting service that provides guaranteed round the clock, 365 days in a year, uninterrupted hosting service to the business websites of super big business organisations and e commerce houses, which are always under the pressure of the traffic of millions of global web site visitors.
The managed dedicated server hosting has the hosting service provider taking care of all works related to server administration and server management. The client needs to pay an additional fee to the service provider, as a server management fee. This fee is not applicable to those clients who opt for unmanaged form of dedicated server hosting. But this client may have to bear the expenses of hiring and maintaining a technical support staff, for managing her/his dedicated server, if the client is not that much technically well versed and knowledgeable, herself/himself.
