VPS vs. Dedicated Hosting: Which Should Your Business Choose?

In most cases, a minimal spike in web traffic is not enough to warrant a dedicated server for a small business. Virtual solutions are competitively priced with lower resource requirements. In the SMB space, most competitors live in the VPS space. The majority of dedicated servers are populated by internationally recognized, enterprise-level companies.

Examine how you will use your hosting service in-house. Do you have the staff to handle on-going maintenance? Can you upgrade hardware internally?
Depending on your answers, you may want to modify your approach. Managed hosting may cost more than traditional hosting, but it can improve your efficiency within the VPS environment to the level of a dedicated server. Although this is undoubtedly more achievable on the lower end of the resource spectrum, it is an aspect to consider.
Another consideration is future growth. Is your company looking to scale? Have you quantified this growth for the next five to ten years?
You should select a platform for the present and five years from now. One aspect that many companies overlook is the ability to scale down as well as up.
If you invest in a dedicated server, you will always pay for the same volume of resources. You may end up wasting money if your needs reduce over time.

How to Choose The Best Dedicated Server Hosting Provider

Choosing the right dedicated hosting provider can be just as difficult as choosing the right dedicated server. Before making any decisions, you have to be sure that the services they offer fit your needs. Some factors to consider include:

Server stability: this is the measure of overall performance, accessibility, and usability. Bottom line? You want to go with a service that offers uptimes of at least 99.95% to minimize the chance of costly outages.

Customer support: look for a dedicated server host that offers 24/7 customer support with a variety of contact options (such as telephone, email, and live chat). You will need someone to be available when you have a problem with your server (which you will) and the response time needs to be fast.

Customization: does the hosting provider offer both Linux and Windows options? Can you allocate space as you wish? Some providers market themselves as providing “dedicated” servers, but limit customization options and even rent space to other users. Make sure that your private server is yours and yours alone.

Security: dedicated servers are inherently much safer than any of the shared options, but that doesn’t mean you’re 100% safe from hackers. To help ensure your site’s security, look for a provider that offers built-in security features, so you don’t have to worry about it.

How We Test Web Hosting Services | Data First

If you're thinking of venturing online to open a store, offer a service, or even just create a blog, you'll need a web hosting service to reach your intended audience. Though all web hosting services operate in a similar manner—they store data on servers that are accessible to others via the internet—they are not all exactly the same. There are many variables to consider when the time comes for you to sign up for a web host, and we consider—and test—all of them when we evaluate hosting services.

Uptime Testing :
Uptime is, without question, the most important aspect of web hosting. If your website is inaccessible, you'll lose traffic, customer confidence, and, depending on your site's purpose, money. You don't want users looking for alternatives while your site is down—and maybe never coming back.

Operating System Options:
The operating system, just as on a desktop or laptop, determines how the server works. And, in the case of web hosting, it also determines which tools you can use to build your site.

One thing you'll notice while exploring server operating system options is that Linux is ubiquitous. You may see different flavors of Linux, such as CentOS or Ubuntu, but every web host that we've reviewed offers the OS.

What Every Business Needs to Know About the Costs of Colocation

Server colocation is a great choice for companies that are interested in streamlining their server operations. By leasing space in a data center, companies have the ability to redistribute bandwidth and power costs, while also having the option to have complete control over their data and hardware.

The amount of money that companies save in networking and power alone can be enough to move their servers completely offsite. However, there are other expenses that should be considered before making the decision to do so.

Colocation Pricing Considerations Before you select a provider, there are things that your company should be aware of. Here’s what you need to know:

1. Hardware
When you’re paying for colocation hosting, you’re not paying for the “rent” on a dedicated server machine. This means that you’re using your own company’s equipment, which creates the need for you to purchase your own hardware.

2. Costs Per Rack
The pricing of colocation heavily depends on the required physical space that’s rented out. The physical space that is rented out has two different ways that it can be measured: in space per square root or in rack units (U).

3. Setting Up
The standard colocation host has a Service Level Agreement (or SLA), which means that the hosting company assumes that you’re going to deploy equipment by yourself. However, there are some providers that will provide with you hardware deployment onsite and remote hands if needed.

4. Blending Your Bandwidth
One of the biggest benefits that colocating has to offer is providing users with the ability to directly connect to an Internet Service Provider. This means that if your main location is in an area that’s limited to 40 Mbps connection, data centers have the ability to directly connect with the Internet Service Provider to get thousands of more megabits per second!

5. Location, Location, Location
The location that your company resides in can drastically affect the pricing you’re paying for colocation. For example, if the data center resides in an urban area, real estate in the area is bound to more expensive. The cost of the property that the data center is using is rolled down to you.

The most important thing that you should take away is that colocation hosting should match what your business is in need of. Make sure that you take the time to learn about a provider before signing up. Get a thorough understanding of how the colocation host runs its data center.

The majority of the colocation pricing is transparent and easy to understand, such as leasing fees and power rates. However, make sure that you take in the other factors that aren’t as obvious, such as the risk of high latency or potential downtime.

How Does Server Colocation Hosting Work ?

Maintaining and managing servers begins by ensuring the environment allows them to work at full capacity. However, this is the main problem businesses with “server closets” deal with. If companies are incapable of taking on such responsibilities on-premises, they will search for a data center that offers colocation services.

Colocation as a service works for businesses who already own hardware and software, but are unable to provide the conditions to store them. The clients, therefore, lease space from their service providers who offer housing for hardware, as well as environmental management.

Clients move their hardware to a data center, set up, and configure their servers. There is no physical contact between the provider and the clients’ hardware unless they specifically request additional assistance known as remote hands.

While the hardware is hosted, the data center assumes all responsibility for environmental management, such as cooling, a reliable power supply, on-premises security, and protection against natural disasters.

The hosting company’s responsibilities typically include:

The hosting company secures and authorizes access to the physical location. The security measures include installing equipment such as cameras, biometric locks, and identification for any personnel onsite. Clients are responsible for securing their servers against cyber-attacks. The provider ensures no one without authorization can come close to the hardware.

The data center is responsible for electricity and any other utilities required by the servers. This also includes energy backups, such as generators, in case of a power outage. Getting and using power efficiently is an essential component. Data centers can provide a power supply infrastructure that guarantees the highest uptime.

Servers and network equipment generate a considerable amount of heat. Hosts provide advanced redundant cooling systems, so servers run optimally. Proper cooling can prevent damage and extends the life of your hardware.
