Gigenet Dedicated Hosting

Exceptional Services; Standard.

Selection of your organization’s hosting environment will define the foundation of your businesses’ online presence; as such, determining your online needs should be an informed and measured approach. There are two online hosting options: dedicated and shared. [This article] will explain the benefits and features of dedicated hosting.

There will be cases where shared hosting may be more advantageous than dedicated servers; you will find information about shared hosting [here], or click to speak with a dedicated representative.

What is Dedicated Hosting?

A dedicated server allows for secure and exclusive access to hardware and connectivity, and ensures your machinery is not accessed by any other user or organization. A useful parallel would be to consider the transportation sector – private and public sector vehicles – where private vehicles represent dedicated servers – vehicles solely for the user – and where public transportation represents shared access to physical resources. With private transportation, the vehicle is for the user, exclusively, and the specification of the vehicle is for the user to define.

Generally and technically, dedicated servers provide for greater degrees of security and customization. Additionally, 3rd party or proprietary software services are often prohibited from running in shared environments.

All hosting solutions that are not dedicated are environments of shared services, including virtual private servers (VPS) and shared Webhosting.

An Introduction to Dedicated Server Hosting

A Dedicated server, as mentioned, provides a user with private access to a dedicated physical machine. The server, network, and the data contained therein are not accessible to any other user, except with authorization.

Below are the primary benefits of deploying a dedicated server:

  • Enhanced Security
  • Control and customization
  • Speed and performance

When You Should Consider Dedicated Hosting

The configuration, size, and demand of your sites’ services are all influencing factors to consider when thinking about the choice between dedicated services and shared hosting services. Speed, security, availability, managed updates, and performance are requirements for many online businesses, and a dedicated server can be configured to meet those needs with precision.

For businesses offering digital store fronts or login facilities, additional layers of security and monitoring services can be deployed in a dedicated environment that may not be available in a shared hosting environment. These are premium features associated with [GigeNET] dedicated services and a reason for the price differential between shared and dedicated hosting.

GigeNET offer flexibility in choice of hardware and software and includes 24/7 managed contracts as a complimentary service. GigeNET managed services offer the benefit of proactive monitoring, management, and maintenance of private networks, and ensures that your services run optimally and maintain consistent availability. Managed services are especially useful for businesses that do not employ technical administrators as staff members.

Managed Server Benefits:

  • Business continuity – back-up and restore
  • Software Service Updates
  • Proactive Security Monitoring

Most dedicated servers are managed services, as this allows for business executives to focus resources on their core business activities with confidence and assurance that their online presence remains robust, available, and reliable. GigeNET remains an industry leader and a pioneer of server management and security maintenance services, including the initial development of DDoS mitigation.
