Building your website on a shared server means that your pages may be affected by a neighboring site that devours too many server resources. For example, if that site receives a huge spike in traffic, your pages might load slowly—or not at all. Investing in a dedicated server greatly reduces this potential problem, plus it gives system administrators greater control over the apps and scripts that they can install on the server, too. Shared hosting is far more limited when it comes to what you're allowed to do, because everything you do could potentially affect the other sites with which you share the server. When you've got the server all to yourself, your scripts and apps won't impinge on anyone else's bandwidth or RAM.
Most hosts offer at least some form of managed services, given that the hardware is living in its own facilities or datacenters. Even if the hosting provider insists on hardware and infrastructure management, they’re usually plenty willing to butt out of your web server if you ask nicely. There will be more pressure and demands on you to keep everything running smoothly and securely, but your host will continue offering technical support if you run into a jam.

Servers with the Windows operating system installed typically support only Windows or Microsoft-based technologies, including ASP.NET, MSSQL, MS Access, and Visual Basic. Windows is particularly useful for the gaming industry, in addition to other software and hardware compatibility. Windows can run on nearly any processor, while Linux is recommended to run with Intel processors. One thing to keep in mind as you shop for Windows hosting: The operating system chews through a lot of computing resources, so look for plans that don’t cut corners on RAM.
Starts with a brief interview to assess your requirements and determine which server or upgrades would optimize your workload. In this situation we recommend at least one or two Elite Dedicated Servers depending on the number of customers you anticipate receiving upon launch. A single server could perform the double duty of hosting your site (front-end) and hosting your client’s sites/email. In a two-server configuration the workloads could be separated into two separate servers giving more resources to each and providing better performance for your website and your clients’ sites. Next we’ll help you set up WHMCS to bill and provision hosting services for your customers’ websites. To provide a safe location to store your data in the event of a disaster, we’ll assist you in creating a backup solution that can include the storage provider of your choice (Amazon S3, Google Drive, etc.) or by storing the backups on an affordable server focused on large storage capacity to keep your data in-house and under your control. As your success grows, it’s safe to expect a larger user-base on your web/email service and a greater number of visitors on your site. This is a great problem to have and it inevitably requires more server resources. We’ll be here to provide expertise on improving your servers’ performance with software optimizations, server hardware upgrades, or even additional servers if you require a lot more room to grow.

With multiple Tier 1 transit providers, dual power supplies, best of breed Cisco technology and support for fibre and copper gigabit connections, your dedicated server will be housed in one of the most secure and resilient data centres in the UK.
24/7 U.S. based Premier Support™ is included with every dedicated server. This team is here to answer your support questions and ensure your server stays online. However, since optional root access is provided, there are limits to what Premier Support™ can help you with. This includes advanced server and database administration, custom application support, user script errors and server backups.
A dedicated server solution is perfect for complex, high-volume websites that require serious amounts of processing power and storage. Some examples of websites that may require this service could be sites that have been around for a while and generated tons of pages and media, multiplayer video game servers for your own pet project, voice or video chat servers, or any other project requiring peak performance at all moments. In essence, if you need a lot of storage, processing power, and/or bandwidth, you need a dedicated server.
