Advantages Server Colocation Hosting

  • The Cost of Bandwidth: The biggest advantage of server colocation hosting is the cost for bandwidth. Normally a low-cost limited bandwidth enterprise-level DSL line costs you as much amount that would have required for housing a single server in a colocation facility that provides premium bandwidth speeds and better redundancy for the Internet connectivity.
  • Better Outage Protection: A colocation facility has better systems placed to tackle outages. Being a small or medium sized enterprise, you may not have enough budget for adequate power-backup. Any outage will result into website down causing huge business loss. But in colocation facility the case is entirely different. Since they house a number of servers, they adopt several power backup options to protect against outages.
  • Flexibility to Install Software/Tools: You are the sole owner of your server. You can install any software or tools that you want to use. You won’t be dependent on your hosting service provider for all these.
  • Flexibility to Upgrade Server: If you find that your server is lagging, you can upgrade it at your own without relying on the service provider.
  • Enhanced Security: A colocation facility center embraces several layers of security to provide your server an enhanced security. You are assured that your server machine is housed and maintained in more secured environment.
  • Managed Service: With a colocation facility, you will have complete peace-of-mind as the service provider can provide a managed service under which their IT professional will oversee maintenance of your server by paying an extra amount. The managed service is useful for those enterprises who have no in-house IT team members.

Affordable Web Hosting Plan

There are different types of hosting plans available to launch a website. Before signing up with a service provider, it is important to understand what sort of service your website needs, the kind of server you or your business need, budget, and type of plans the company offers. Let’s look at few affordable web hosting plans by various companies,

• Website Builders – This type of service catering to the needs of beginners who need to host a website but lack technical skills to build a website on their own. They provide you an online browser-based interface through which you can launch your own website without any additional settings. This type of web hosting is the most basic kind without many technical difficulties.

• Shared Hosting – In a shared hosting environment, you and other website owners share one server. This includes sharing the physical server and the software applications within the server. Shared services are most affordable ones because the cost to operate the server is shared between you and the other owners.

• Dedicated Hosting – In this server environment, you own an entire web server to yourself. This enhances your server to work faster and efficient as all your server resources are dedicated to serving your website alone. However, this type of servers is quite costly and the cost of designing and maintenance should be solely born by one entity. Hence, these types of servers are suitable for large and well-established entities and are not for small enterprises or start-ups.

Information of Dedicated Server

The Disadvantage of a Dedicated Server

A dedicated server doesn’t really come with any disadvantages for your website, which is why they are so popular with online businesses. The only consideration for your business is the increased cost. Hardware investment for a hosting company will run into thousands of pounds, but the cost to the customer is spread over a number of years. It is possible for you to lower your annual server cost by committing to a longer agreement – contact us to discuss the options.

Prevention is better than cure

As unpleasant as it may be, server downtime is inevitable at some point – whether that’s for maintenance or due to factors beyond all our control. From time to time a website owner may become frustrated that a website is offline and may even feel that the downtime is costing thousands in lost revenue. If you think you’d feel the same, that even 30 minutes of downtime may cost hundreds or thousands in lost revenue, please invest in your hosting now.

A shared hosting package costing a couple of hundred pounds per year is perfect for many website owners, but it will inevitably have its limitations and won’t suit business or revenue-critical situations. 99.99% uptime equates to 53 minutes offline per year and it is undeniable that downtime is more likely on a shared server.
