Dedicated Server Hosting: How Crucial it is for your Web Interface

Are you planning to build a website for your business? But, before that, you need a good web development service.

Web development is basically every work that concerns building a website. And, to do this efficiently, you need a hosting service.

Here, you might wonder why hosting service is important. The answer is quite simple. A hosting service provider will provide you a pro-level service. Of course, you can do this on your own. But that will be too much hard work to deal with.

You have to choose a type, then buy a domain, and go through a chain of procedures. A hosting service provider can do all this for you.

However, there are many types of hosting services – dedicated server hosting, shared hosting, virtual private server hosting, collected hosting, cloud hosting, etc.

All these types have their own pros and cons. So, choosing one can be a tough job.

But I will say go for a dedicated server hosting. Though shared server hosting is much cheaper, it has few security risks of its own.

However, you deserve to know every ins-and-outs of the dedicated server hosting service. So, let us begin.

Dedicated Server Hosting: An Overview

In dedicated server hosting, you lease a web hosting service’s server in the data center to create your website. In this type of server hosting, you basically pay the web hosting service for a server which only you can use.

When you are operating a single server without sharing it with anyone, it keeps you away from some serious security issues.

These security issues are quite common in shared server hosting services.

Benefits of a Dedicated Server Hosting

The benefits of the Dedicated Server Hosting service are –

First of all, you can decide what hardware you want to use for your website. Which means, the hosting service provider will give you the option to choose from the various hardware options.

Choosing your own hardware will allow you to stay relaxed about the traffic of your website. If you see that the traffic on your website is increasing, you can upgrade the hardware accordingly.

Security is the next major thing on the website. If your website faces any cyber-threat, you might lose your customers. This might affect the image of your company.

When you are using a shared server for your website, you share the same server with other people. If there is one malicious websites on that server, it makes your website vulnerable too.

When you use a dedicated server, you don’t have to face such problems.

Additionally, you get administrative control when you use a dedicated server. If the server becomes slow, you can replace it easily. If you feel that you need more RAM, you can get that too.

Disadvantages of a Dedicated Server Hosting

The disadvantages of a Dedicated Server Hosting service are –

  • Dedicated server hosting is pretty costly compared to other hosting services.
  • To operate a dedicated server hosting, you need to have in-depth knowledge. You need to manage a lot of things as you have a full server leased for your business.
  • To make dedicated server hosting work properly, you need to decide what Operating System should go in the server, what kind of hardware you need, etc. Basically, you need an IT team.

Now that you know about the advantages and disadvantages of the Dedicated Server Hosting service, you can go for it. So, let me tell you how to set up and configure a dedicated server.

Configure a Dedicated Server: Beginners’ Guide

Are you thinking of buying a dedicated server? Web Designing Services can be your pick. Let’s see the process of configuring a dedicated server –

Initiating the Configuring Process

If you don’t have a DreamHost account, you first have to make one. Then, log into your account and access the dashboard.

In the dashboard, you will see a “Add a Dedicated Server” button. Select this. A form will appear where you can configure the server.

Specify the Number of Cores you Need for CPU

The first option you will have to select is the number of cores you want for the Central Processing Unit (CPU). Core is a part of the CPU that helps it with the processing power.

Using multiple cores will help the server to perform multiple functions at a time. DreamHost allows you to choose between either 4 or 12 cores. So, select the core depending on your requirement.

Select the Storage Option

After selecting the number of cores for the CPU, you need to select the storage for your server. You will see that there are three options, but you will not be able to select all of them.

The storage option change with the number of cores selected. For example, for 4 cores CPU, 1TB HDD option will be available.

The primary factor you need to consider while selecting the storage option is the amount of space you need and the type of hard disk you want to use. You can opt for HDD or SSD with DreamHost.

The basic difference between the 2 is that the HDD has more storage. While the SSD is faster because it does not use any moving parts like the HDD. However, has less storage than HDD.

Adding RAM to the Server

The most important part of a server is the Random Access Memory (RAM). It helps to determine the loading speed of your website.

If the server runs out of memory, the performance of your website will be affected. So, you have to be very careful while selecting the RAM.

The following factors affect RAM the most –

  • Operating System (OS) – Different OS requires a different amount of RAM to function. DreamHost’s all server runs on Ubuntu OS, which helps in RAM management.
  • Side Traffic – The traffic on your site is greatly affected by the RAM of the server. It will be manageable if you assign 1GB of RAM for every 2,500 visitors on your site per day.
  • Applications – The applications on the server also uses a good amount of RAM.

It’s up to you to opt for the RAM size for your website. However, it is recommended to have the RAM a bit larger than the actual required RAM size.

Migrate an Existing Server

If you already have an account on DreamHost, you can choose to migrate your existing account to your new dedicated server. This will carry your data and all your old plans, including your domains and users to your server.

This is appropriate for those accounts whose current plan has expired. By migrating to your new server, you will be able to keep all your data and settings the same way it was before.

Selecting your Payment Plan

After setting up the server, you now have to select a payment plan. The pricing options update based on the choices you make on this page.

You can opt for a monthly or annual payment option.

If you opt for the yearly plan, you will have to pay more money upfront, but it will save money in the long term. The choice is up to you.

Whatever option you choose, to complete the procedure, click “Add Server”.


So, if you want the best for your website and want full control, then you should definitely go for Dedicated Server Hosting.

I hope that you learned about the Dedicated Server Hosting service and its benefits in details. So, go for it without any doubt.

N5,000.00 for Online Training but you must be able to register a domain name and rent web hosting account from Zion Web Hosting to start the training.
