Why Dedicated Servers
It's Graduation Day
It's Graduation Day
Are you ready to get rid of the roommates? We've got your back with our dedicated hosting solution. You'll have the freedom and flexibility to grow without being affected by other sites on the same server. Shared hosting environments, although very reliable and cost effective, can be affected by other site processes, scripts or activities from others sharing the same machine; think of it like you're a resident of an apartment complex; all of you live in the same building, share the same resources like electricity, gas, and water. Shared hosting is a lot like that. With a dedicated server YOU have exclusive control and access to that machine.
With traditional unmanaged dedicated servers, there is a large amount of time and technical expertise required, as you are ultimately responsible for the installation and management of the server. WestHost's managed dedicated servers eliminate the need for expertise in server administration, as powerful and intuitive tools for administering the setup and maintenance of websites, email, and domains are available instantly. Updates and patches to software are our responsibility, not yours, yet you still retain administrative control as the only client on the server. So unless you have extensive server administration resources or expertise, as well as a significant amount of time available to take care of your server, a Managed Dedicated Server is your best option at WestHost.
If you are considering hosting numerous sites, have a high traffic site, data sensitive site or simply want more power and control, it's time to consider a dedicated server. Despite the cost differences, a dedicated server is the best solution for those that are serious about their website and want the assurance that hardware, software and resources are dedicated exclusively to them.
Your server WILL be up 99.9% of the time. With powerful hardware and excellent facilities we're confident that your server will be there when you need it.
