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 WordPress websites with a very large number of visitors. Many WordPress hosting service providers offer Dedicated Hosting plans along with shared and VPS hosting plans.
What is Dedicated hosting?
Dedicated hosting plans are ideal for large organizations or websites with much higher traffic. The clients get full control of the server which allows them to configure it to meet their own needs. The dedicated plans also come in managed and unmanaged forms where the hosting center can manage the server for the client in case of any problems. Dedicated Managed servers are generally more expensive. The pricing is also influenced by the number of resources needed such as bandwidth, storage space, and amount of RAM, amongst other things. Additional expenses for dedicated servers also include the software packages needed to run the server. Such software can include licensing for Windows, if desired, cPanel, if desired, and other paid software. Free alternatives to most of the paid software packages are available but are not generally preferred due to issues with the stability of the software. The main exception to the preference for paid vs free software is the widespread use of Linux over Microsoft or other paid OS on servers.
Working of Dedicated hosting server
A dedicated server is far more reliable and secure than a shared hosting account that utilizes shared resources between customers. A dedicated server is reserved with 100% of the resources allocated to the client. This means that no two customers will share Internet connectivity, hardware, disk space, etc. This type of service is designed to allow 100% up-time and enterprise-level clients can rest assured that the service is available to them without any compromise. Mission-critical applications also require dedicated servers to be backed by sophisticated and powerful, fully redundant, infrastructure which sets data centers apart from traditional computer servers in an office environment. The cost associated with dedicated servers varies depending upon the infrastructure deployed but is almost always more economical than purchasing the server hardware outright and managing it internally.
