There is nothing as formidable, strong and stable as a dedicated server when it comes to hosting, if you leave aside cloud computing. You retain complete control over your content, CPU usage, there is 0 percent downtime, the websites load really fast and there is no bandwidth issue as well. Shared hosting may compromise on bandwidth anytime, you do not have control over the disc-space and one is not totally sure about the security too. Such problems are not there in dedicated server hosting which is why it is the first choice of anyone who wants to scale up his or her web business. One of the leading names in dedicated server hosting is Liquid Web.
One of the things that people tend to overlook when it comes to choosing any web hosting is customer service. In case of dedicated hosting, the customer service is paramount, considering you are paying a premium to get the best web host for your IT related needs. There are some companies which may just offer patches, security updates and a knowledge base. But there are other hosting companies which may actively involve themselves in helping you out with every aspect right from installation to checking regularly to know that your web services are running without a glitch.
Liquid Web with their propriety tools in place is a leading name in dedicated server hosting. The customer support gets a thumbs-up for always being helpful and supportive 24/7 and bringing the best expertise to the table. The company offers solutions to Linux as well as Windows Operating systems. The proprietary tools that we were talking about are Proactive Sonar Monitoring and ServerSecure server hardening. Proactive Sonar Monitoring is a tool that ensures that the server is running free of any problems with the inbuilt functionality to detect potential problems at the earliest and remove them. ServerSecure is a term synonymous with security, reliability and compatibility of your server and software.
