Dedicated Hosting

Posted by eric

Depending on your needs and exact situation, MetroHosting may be able to offer you the benefits of custom dedicated server hosting for the price of affordable shared web hosting.

Managed shared hosting is ideal for customers who are using our shared hosting services yet need support above and beyond the standard level of support that our shared web hosting service provides. Managed shared hosting includes all of the support you would regularly get with our shared hosting services along with extra support focused on website owners tho don't want to spend time managing the details of their site or need assistance with some more technical aspects of hosting.
Managed Shared Hosting Includes:

  • Page specific monitoring of your site
  • Restart and troubleshooting of applications
  • Making changes in the control panel you'd rather us make
  • Installation and upgrade of many open-source web apps (i.e WordPress, Drupal)
  • Assistance with web editing software
  • Assistance with e-mail programs (i.e. Outlook, Thunderbird)
  • Advice on managing website workflow

Our managed shared hosting includes support of all items listed above. It does not include any programming, development, or web design services. Any software that you install or configurations that you change may not be covered, so we recommend that you let us perform any needed installations of software or configuration changes.
If your company has gotten by with shared hosting or a shared server but you have had issues with lack of design flexibility, safety or general efficiency with your website, it's time to consider upgrading to dedicated hosting. Having your own server opens up a whole new world of possibilities for the web-based portion of your business.
In the web hosting business, the dedicated servers, also referred to as dedicated hosting, are the cream of the crop.. A dedicated server is a powerful computer that is used solely as a network server; a single computer in a network reserved for network needs. It refers to the rental and exclusive use of a computer and it provides services for only one account or domain name. It is therefore solely for use by one organization, and is leased and stored in the data centre of the host company.
Dedicated web hosting is beneficial while developing a complex business or a high-end e-commerce site as you will need more space and security - a custom dedicated server designed especially for your business. It is purchased by a company when they want more control of their server. They purchase or rent the hardware from the hosting company who then normally support and manage it.
