Dedicated Servers

Renting dedicated servers is all about control, resources and flexibility.

With your own box you have full remote admin control and unlimited flexibility over software installation. With your own box, constructed to your requirements from premium Intel hardware, the server's entire resources are exclusively available to drive your business applications. The rental advantage helps you manage your costs without hardware outlay and upgrade as your requirements scale.

Choosing the right web hosting package and provider is a crucial decision for modern organisations. You need to make certain that your requirements are properly met by whatever solution you choose and that, as well as offering a reliable daily service, your provider has the flexibility to deal fluidly with any changes in your needs over time.

Three of the key reasons for choosing a dedicated server over shared hosting are:

Speed - Having your own server means that the processor, memory and disks are working just for you. Your site will not suffer due to excessive traffic to other peoples' web sites, so you can take full advantage of the resources available.

Security - No server can ever be 100% secure but if you are serious about data security a dedicated server is the best option. Shared server hosting is fine for smaller websites, but we would advise that anyone with a more complex site or storing customer or sensitive details maximise their control over security issues by using a dedicated server. If you are serious about e-commerce, you should also consider a thawte certificate.

Scalability - Growing businesses may need to change rapidly. Dedicated Servers can be relied upon to be ready to grow your hardware solution with you at your pace, and will help you manage any upgrades to minimise downtime.
