Today, we are going to be talking about a dedicated server, what it is, and how it can help you.
At DSC, we have been been in the IT and colocation service industry for more than 30 years, and we are happy to share our expertise and knowledge with you.
We’ll explain what a dedicated server is and help you decide if it would be the best choice for your business. So, let’s get started.
A dedicated server is only used by your business
What Is a Dedicated Server?
Dedicated server hosting means that you lease an entire server from your hosting company. This server is totally “dedicated” for your company’s use alone, and you are given complete control over your hosting environment so you are able to:
- Modify all of your server settings
- Install your own operating systems
- Install other software components
You Lease a Dedicated Server:
Unlike colocation hosting, where you place your own equipment on rented rack space in a data center, when getting a dedicated server you don’t actually own the server. Instead, you lease it and you are the only one who is using it.
You lease a dedicated server and have complete control over it
You Don’t Share Resources:
In addition, with dedicated server hosting, you do not share any critical resources with other domain owners. As a result, your server will give you top performance because you are not sharing:
- Processor power
- Disk space
Other Benefits of a Dedicated Server
Because no other company is sharing your server, you can:
- Enjoy higher speeds
- More uptime
- Increased security because no one else has access to your server
- You will have your own unique IP address
- You can have more memory pr, more processor, and more disk space added later on by your service provider if you need it
You also won’t run the risk of being crashed, swamped, or slowed down by any other site.
With a dedicated server, you are given a unique IP address
Your hosting company will typically provide you with:
- Internet connection
- Physical security
- Protective features provided by the data center
Is a Dedicated Server Service Right for Your Business?
A dedicated server is usually a service that medium to large businesses choose. This is mainly due to the cost of the service. A dedicated server is a good choice if you have:
Mission-Critical Operations: A dedicated server is great for businesses that perform mission-critical operations. That means that if your business would grind to a halt if your network system failed or was disrupted, then having a dedicated server would be a great benefit.
Large Volume of Traffic: In addition, a dedicated server is great if your business experiences large volumes of traffic over its network. Because the resources are not shared on a dedicated server, it can better handle large volumes of traffic with faster speeds. So if you have a large website, then dedicated server hosting would be a good choice.
DSC is your best choice for dedicated server hosting in Atlanta
Why Choose DSC for Dedicated Server Services in Atlanta
DSC Is Local:
DSC is a locally owned and operated data center and dedicated server provider just outside of Atlanta. You’ll find that we are a refreshing change from the bigger dedicated server providers. You can feel good knowing that you are supporting a company whose staff lives and works in your own area. When you call DSC, you will be talking to someone who is your neighbor, and not someone from another state or country that doesn’t know about you or this area.
DSC Is the Perfect Size:
DSC is just the right balance between being large enough to have enough highly trained staff to provide you with the top quality dedicated server service you need and yet small enough to give you that personal touch.
We take the time to get to know each of our clients personally and if you ever have a problem, you can call and talk to one of our trained technicians who will be happy to help you right on the spot.
Large corporations, on the other hand, often only give you the option of contacting them through email. You are often made to feel like you are only another number to them.
