Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 16, 2008
Imagine a company that just launched the biggest-ever promotion for its online business. The product line has caught on like wildfire and all systems are go. The CEOs dreams of making it on the Web are finally materializing - and then it happens.
The traffic spikes and the shared server that CEO subscribed to crashes, confusing and disappointing hundreds, if not thousands, of would-be buyers.
Could this dream-turned-nightmare have been prevented? And does this happen to everyone when traffic soars? The answer is "yes" to the first question and "no" to the second. A dedicated server can help avoid a system crash due to traffic spikes, but if a company is using a shared server it may have to rethink its options.
A shared server makes sense for a startup company that isn't certain how quickly the traffic momentum will build. But when a business shows promise, its owners need to seriously consider a dedicated server. That's because that company not only bypass the likelihood of a costly crash, its owners will also be able to tailor the server to the business' particular needs.
Preventing a crash is better than curing one. What's more, keeping page load times down will keep customers happy. With a dedicated server, companies can choose the software and other features that help the business do both. Security is also enhanced when you are the one calling the shots for the server, as the likelihood of a hacker sabotaging the site shrinks. The more sites a company is operating, the more dedicated servers make sense.
While the cost of a dedicated server may be somewhat higher than shared hosting, discount package plans through ServerPronto are now available that can provide a company with the stability and security it needs to protect a growing enterprise. At any rate, keeping sites up and functioning at full capacity is worth the expense. After all, it only takes one website crash to send customers to a competitor.
