Thanks to the advancement and increased accessibility of modern technology, tasks that used to be more difficult and reserved for the technically gifted, such as building a website, are now relatively simple. There’s a lot to consider in regards to design and content, but before you pick a theme and decide which font you want to use — your first decision needs to be which type of web hosting to purchase.
There are a few different types of website hosting, each of which have their individual advantages, but dedicated servers are unrivalled when it comes to quality, efficiency, and scalability. If you run Windows operating systems and applications you’ll want Windows dedicated servers (for which you can check out our guide), but we’re here to talk about Linux dedicated servers.
Before we get into the ins-and-outs of dedicated servers, it’s probably a good idea to to explain what Linux is, as many people will only be used to dealing with Windows and Mac operating systems. Linux is similar to other operating systems in many ways, for example, Linux has its own equivalent of Windows and Mac applications (such as word processors).
The main and most defining different between Linux and other operating systems is that it’s ‘open source’. This means that the code used to make Linux is available for the public to view, edit, and— if a user happens to have the appropriate skill—to contribute to.
There are a fair few types of web hosting, which proves to be useful as people tend to have a wide range of budgets and site requirements. When it comes to website hosting, dedicated servers are at the top of the pile in regards to quality, efficiency, and reliability — and if you’re running a Linux operating system, Linux dedicated servers are the perfect way to maintain and monitor your website efficiently.
Dedicated server hosting is essentially the opposite of shared hosting. With a shared server you and a bunch of other sites will share the resources of one server, which can be troublesome for security and performance. A dedicated server provides you with advanced hardware and a server devoted to your site(s). Meaning that your website enjoys 100% of the server’s bandwidth and memory.
Linux dedicated servers represent the forefront of web hosting technology, and is essential for any website or business owner looking for a service that is secure, reliable, and scalable. Take a look at our range of servers!
