Has Your Business Grown to Where You've Outgrown Your Server
Are you in a situation where your internet business has grown to the point where you have hundreds of visitors to your site each day? As we all know, it takes a while to build up a profitable thriving online business, espically in this harsh economic environment we're experiencing today. In every website or promotional campaign, it takes a lot of hard work, dedication and commitment to work your way up into such a good position as this. You don't want to see all that that hard work go down the drain, however, if your customers are unable to access your website because of an overloaded server, all of your hard work suddenly goes out the window. One thing you can always count on in this business is change.
One indication of overload is that your customers are finding it difficult to get through to your site! What you need is more space for your website and all the other different programs you're using to promote your business opportunity. Have you thought about the possibilities of hosting your own website and maybe even other websites relating to your business? Then you might consider a dedicated server.
If any of the above scenarios sounds familiar to you, you should be asking yourself "do I need a dedicated server?" The answer is positively "yes" if you have any hopes on expanding your online business then you are going to have to accept the fact that some upgrades in your system are necessary. If you are steadily increasing traffic to your website it's going to start getting more difficult for your customers to conveniently get hold of you. If the customer can't get hold of you, sooner or later your clients will start fading away at an alarming rate and you business will quickly fail.
Remember back when you first started on the internet? You probably uploaded your website onto a shared server. This is usually the best option for anyone starting out a business because it is the most affordable option at that time. A shared server costs a lot less than a dedicated server and is the prudent option for a small business.
When your business starts to grow, you will want to look into obtaining a broader bandwidth. By doing a Google search regarding dedicated servers you will find multiple bandwidth options. A dedicated server hosts only your website and assets. This means that you get all of the space and bandwidth on the server to yourself. This can enable you to grow your website quicker and even larger with minimal down time. If the price for a dedicated server is out of reach, then look into the possibilities of a virtual private server. You can do a Google search and find any number of opportunities for a virtual server.
A dedicated server is the best option for a large or growing business. Not only do you get more space for your website, enabling you to incorporate databases such as blogs, forums and shopping carts, but you also get more bandwidth. Bandwidth is what allows the server to filter in customers from other servers.
On a shared server, you share bandwidth with many other websites. This is an excellent solution if there is not much traffic. If, however, if any of the site on that shared server suddenly begins to get more traffic to their website, you may actually end up losing customers if you do not have enough total bandwidth on the shared server. The amount of bandwidth you have is crucial to the traffic you can handle on your website.

If your business is growing, chances are that you've devoted a lot of time; effort and money into making your business grow to where it is today. You do not want to throw it all away at this point by clinging to a shared server just because it's cheap. Sometimes "cheap is not good and good is not cheap". While a dedicated server will cost more to maintain, it is well worth the extra cost. Just bite the bullet and do what you must do to survive in this competitive online business venture. This is just part of the cost of doing business. Going for cheap can kill your possibilities of growing your online business. Make those all important business choices today that will pay off handsomely, now and in the future.
In addition to allowing more space and traffic to your website, a dedicated server that only hosts your website, can also be more secure. Many dedicated servers come with a certified secure certificate when you install your server system. You have security control over both the server and the website, thus doubling your security efforts. This can be important to both you and your customers and potential clients. Many would be customers won't even log onto a site unless it is a secure site. This is going to require some study on this important issue of dedicated and virtual servers. Take the time and do your homework here.
When you're shopping for a dedicated server, be aware of how much space you have now, how much of the space you're currently using, as well as your total bandwidth currently being used. In most cases, you'll want to at least double whatever you have now. Take a look at the different dedicated servers that are on the market today to choose the one that best fits the needs for you and your business.
