5 Reasons why a Bare Metal Dedicated Server is the Right Choice


Are you looking to find the best Dedicated Hosting Provider and considering using Bare Metal Dedicated Servers for your Application or Website?

Running an online business can be very challenging.

Choosing a Server Infrastructure Provider is one of the essential decisions you need to make for your online business.

It is important to invest in the right technology that suits your business.

Ultimately, users want to connect to your company and interact with your brand online in the fastest way possible.

If a website or application takes more than a few seconds to load, the likelihood is that users will lose interest and go to a competitor.

To avoid this, you need to ensure that your website operates at maximum efficiency, providing fast connectivity and a carefully optimized server.

This tends to come down to what hosting service or solution you choose.

There is a variety of hosting options available to you, even on the ServerHub Platform.

In addition, you can choose shared hosting. With shared hosting, you will be on the same server as various other businesses and websites.

That is more than enough for companies with low levels of traffic and low requirements. Great for small bloggers, fan sites, and hosting your own emails.

However, as your business grows, it is imperative to consider taking your hosting to the next level.

Naturally, for the best experience for your users and flexibility for yourself, we recommend ServerHub Bare Metal Servers.

Here are a few reasons why a Bare Metal Dedicated Server from ServerHub is the right choice for your business.

Low Load Times

We've already mentioned the issue that slow load times can cause your business. If it takes more than a couple seconds, they will click back.

In fact, that's not even the only issue you have to contend with here.

Google has made slow load times a large part of their SEO requirements. So, if your page takes longer to load, could mpactsing your ranking.

When you are part of a shared network, you will be sharing all the resources of other businesses. This can lead to points where the ram and the CPU are completely overloaded, bringing downtime and slow loading. That can be enough to damage your website rep for good.

Server Expandability

A dedicated server offers you the flexibility of customizing the server to your unique CPU, RAM, disk space, and software needs. A customer is limited to the applications, software, and operating environment already loaded on the server with shared hosting.

A dedicated server allows organizations a customizable server environment that fits their needs. They can choose the platform and software they really need, allowing more control over how their dedicated server is configured.

As your business continues to grow, so will your online server's requirements; since you are in control of the server, maintenance windows may be easily planned to make required upgrades that may not be permissible in shared environments.

Better Security

Security is another issue that you must consider as a business owner. This is always going to be at the top of your list of priorities. By 2020 it is expected that there will be a major hack on a company every 20 seconds. While other hosting platforms such as shared hosting or a virtual private server can offer a certain level of protection because they are shared, they will always be at risk and increase exposure to security issues. This includes hacks, viruses to name a few.

Furthermore, since multiple businesses operate on the same server, it's more difficult to determine the source or even recognize a hack. You can still do this, but it can take significantly longer, so you may not know your website is breached as soon as you'd like. This can stop you from protecting or at least informing customers.

In contrast, using a Bare Metal Dedicated Server, you will be able to gain access to a higher level of security for information on your website and any sensitive data that you might be storing for customers. You will also not be responsible for ensuring server security. We will do this for you and guarantee that measures are in place to protect your customers and clients.

Single Tenant Environment

One of the most significant advantages of a Dedicated Server, also commonly referred to in our industry as Bare Metal Servers, is the fact that you are a Single Tenant on your server infrastructure, which means you will never have to worry about another user or bad actor taking your site or application down because of issues that are caused by them, and ultimately beyond your control. Single-Tenant Environments are perfect for users such as Gaming Platforms, Application Providers, or users with Sensitive Data since limiting the number of users that access the server can minimize the risk of unintentional data breaches

Value for Private Cloud and VPS Resellers

A Dedicated Server can be a handy tool for hosting resellers who choose not to invest in colocation or dedicated network infrastructure. Depending on your business model, it may make much more financial sense to rent large dedicated servers from a company such as ServerHub who can provide you with a unified platform in multiple geographical locations, allowing you to be in a variety of different cities, such as Dallas, New York or even Amsterdam without the need to build out costly networks.

Although this article doesn't touch on all the positive points of choosing a Dedicated Server, choosing to use a dedicated server provides many benefits that shared server resources cannot provide. We hope this article has been helpful in your decision-making process for the right Managed Hosting Solution.

Suppose you are seeing a tremendous level of growth in your business model. In that case, the advantages of this type of setup will make it a worthwhile investment to continue to propel your business to the next level.
