Dedicated hosting is an Internet hosting option in which a physical server (or servers) is dedicated to a single business customer. The customer has complete control over the machine, so they can optimize it for their unique requirements, including performance and security. The hosting provider supplies the physical server and environment, the associated services and technical support. 

Five Dedicated Server Benefits
A dedicated server leverages the power and scalability.  With a dedicated server, your business realizes a compound return on its monthly investment in the following ways:

1. Exclusive use of dedicated resources
When you have your own dedicated server, you get the entire web server for your exclusive use. The server’s disk space, RAM, bandwidth, etc., now belong to you. You have exclusive use of all the CPU or RAM and bandwidth. At peak business times, you continue to get peak performance.
You have root access to the server. You can add your own software and configure settings and access the server logs. Root access is the key advantage of dedicated servers. Again, it goes back to exclusivity.

2. Flexibility managing your growing business
A dedicated server can accommodate your growing business needs. With a dedicated server, you can decide on your own server configuration. As your business grows, you can add more or modify existing services and applications. You remain more flexible when new opportunities arise or unexpected markets materialize. It is scalability for customizing to your needs. If you need more processing, storage, or backup, the dedicated server is your platform. Also, today’s consumers have higher expectations. They want the convenience of quick access to your products. A dedicated server serves your customers with fast page loading and better user experience. If you serve them, they will return.

3. Improved reliability and performance
Reliability is one of the benefits of exclusivity. A dedicated server provides peak performance and reliability. That reliability also means that server crashes are far less likely. Your website has extra resources during periods of high-volume traffic. If your front end includes videos and image displays, you have the bandwidth you need. Second, only to good website design are speed and performance. The power of a dedicated server contributes to the optimum customer experience. Managed dedicated web hosting is a powerful solution for businesses. It comes with a higher cost than shared hosting. But you get high power, storage, and bandwidth to host your business.

I hope this information will be helpful!

 Here are a few more:

Increased Performance

Unlike shared hosting plans, where there are dozens, if not, hundreds of other users sharing the same server as your business, a VPS will ensure that your enterprise remains independent of other users. This is important because websites that share a plan can be affected by one another, and this can cause functionality problems. For instance, if a website sharing the same server as your business is receiving high levels of traffic, it can slow all of the sites on the server. By using a Virtual Dedicated Server, the functioning of your website will never be determined by other sites.

Greater Control

A common issue that can occur if you do not use a VPS is a lack of access to your root environment. Without root access, you must rely on software packages that the hosting provider supports. Unsupported software can raise security concerns for hosting providers, and on a shared server, the software that is available will be dictated by the host. If your business is looking to use industry-specific software that is not supported by the host, then this could cause issues and may prevent the use of the software entirely. By using a VPS, your business will be able to freely implement any necessary software changes within the server.

Scalability

If you own a small business and do not have plans of expanding, then you may be able to predict the amount of traffic your website will receive. However, if you are looking to grow your business, then chances are that traffic levels will increase as the customer base expands, and you will need a server to accommodate this. Unlike a shared server, which can be limiting in regards to scalability, a VPS makes it easy to scale up operations without interfering with the functioning of the server. In fact, scaling up can be as simple as upgrading your hosting plan, and this typically does not require any downtime, so your site will continue to operate without interruption.

Low Cost

It used to be that businesses would typically opt for shared hosting plans because virtual private servers were too expensive to use. However, as internet technologies have advanced, the cost of web hosting has significantly decreased, make GPU Vps Hosting an option for nearly any business. Many providers have VPS hosting plans for under $10 per month, which is hardly more than the rate of most shared plans.

Customer Service

When problems are encountered with a hosting service it can make for a stressful situation. After all, the livelihood of your business could depend on these servers. If you use a VPS then there will be a dedicated customer service representative who will be able to help you resolve any issues, and also offer recommendations that will meet your business needs.

Hope this helps.
