When is the Right Time to Move to a Dedicated Server?

The dedicated server is good. Does that mean you have to get it? No, not unless you really need it. How do find out if you do? Who doesn’t want a better server, right? But that does not necessarily mean you need it. So, it is important that you find out if there is a right time to move to dedicated hosting. Let’s look at pointers that will help you figure that out.

  • When your website’s traffic is too much for the shared server to handle, you need a better solution.
  • If you want to minimize downtimes as the website is critical to your business, you need a dedicated server.
  • If you are looking at hosting several websites, you need a bigger server.
  • If you want to configure the server and take control of your website the way you like, you can’t live with a shared server.
  • If you need a lot of disk space for your website and your growing needs, you cannot stay with shared hosting.
  • If you need to install applications of your liking for your website, you need a server that is in your control.
  • If your bandwidth requirements have increased, you need something better than shared hosting.
  • If you want to make your websites more secure, you need a bigger and better server.

And above all, you should not only be ready to afford the dedicated server but also be ready to manage its management. And, as per the management of the server, you should be ready to afford outsourcing it if you cannot handle it on your own.
