Responsibilities, at times, make us afraid and back out. But if you are letting the fear of responsibilities interfere with your business, you are definitely not doing good business. So, if you are delaying getting a dedicated server just because you don’t want to take on the responsibility of taking care of it, I am afraid you are not looking at the future. If your websites have anything to do with your business, you cannot live with shared hosting for long.
You get the dedicated server. Now what? How do you take care of it? One of the things that you should keep in mind even before you buy the server is the way you plan to manage it. If you have people who can look after it, then you are good. But if you cannot handle it on your own, you need managed hosting.
Yes, managed hosting means you have to spend a considerable amount of money. And if you have been reluctant to buy the server because of its high cost, you would not want more expenses. However, if you want to reap the benefits of the server, you have to spend some money. But don’t worry, the management of your server won’t make holes in your pocket. There are versions of managed hosting. You don’t need to go for fully-managed hosting. You can opt for partially-managed or colocation hosting. These will cost you less and yet give you the peace of mind you wanted. So, don’t delay getting that dedicated server anymore.
