What is a dedicated server?
A computer server is essential to host the data of a website. Different types of servers are available on the web hosting market. Among them is the dedicated server. Its particularity is to store data from a single site.
Note: a dedicated server can be a physical or virtual machine. In the latter case, we speak of VPS (Virtual Private Server).
Why use a dedicated server?
The main advantage of the dedicated server is that it makes all of its resources (information processing power, memory, connection, etc.) available to a single site. This implies better performance in the event of heavy traffic or large data entry or exit. This is why this type of accommodation is particularly suitable for e-commerce sites or those with a strong community.
In addition, a dedicated server offers the possibility of being configured according to the needs of the site and / or the company. Thus, it is also suitable for those who have specific needs in terms of computer equipment. But, for this it is better to have a specialized team internally.
Finally, using a dedicated server implies more security for the site and for the data. It is therefore particularly suitable for those who have confidential and sensitive data.
