Even some of the best website servers will run into problems at some point. When you go the dedicated hosting route, it is even more crucial that you read the terms and conditions of the plan before you sign up. This type of hosting is much more hands-on than any other kid, and for this reason, you need to know that you know what you are responsible for and what you are not.
By far the best feature of AccuWebHosting, though, is the impressive spec you get on your chosen server. 16GB of RAM is well above standard for the price of their web hosting, as are CPUs running at 3.4 GHz. You’ll also get a colossal 4TB of storage space. According to their support, you’ll also get unlimited bandwidth. It almost seems too good to be true – and it is.
With custom server setup you’ll be able to install whatever software your website requires to function, plus you’ll be able to allocate resources however you see fit. However, to get the most out of your server environment you’ll want a technical team that’s able to maintain and optimize your server environment for you. So, if you’re a non-technical website owner, you might need to think about bringing on technical staff.
With dedicated servers, you want a lot of storage and power if you are building an enterprise website. Otherwise, you may not need as much storage. There are also differences between processors. With single processor servers, you will not spend as much, but if you are purchasing a server with multi-core such as an Intel Xeon processor, then you will likely spend to have that additional power.
With a dedicated IP server, you’ll be able to have superior flexibility and control over your website. Your first choice will be choosing between a Linux or Windows operating system. This choice will depend on the configuration that suits your website the best, however, most users will opt for a Linux server setup unless they’re running a piece of software that’s Windows-only.
The servers at Bluehost start at $79.99/month and include 1TB of hard drive space, 16GB of RAM, and 15TB of data transfers per month. Bluehost will also setup the server for you and create custom configurations for an additional cost. Bluehost also throws in some website monitoring tools and easy-to-use applications so that you can set up what you need in very little time.
Until 1991, the Internet was restricted to use only "...for research and education in the sciences and engineering..." and was used for email, telnet, FTP and USENET traffic—but only a tiny number of web pages. The World Wide Web protocols had only just been written and not until the end of 1993 would there be a graphical web browser for Mac or Windows computers. Even after there was some opening up of internet access, the situation was confused until 1995.
Today I will take you through a selection of web hosts which offer quality dedicated solutions at an affordable price. At this stage, you either have a high-traffic website or a project that requires a very specific configuration. So trying to determine the “best server provider” would be pointless — what fits you might be a disaster for someone else.
