Dedicated Server Hosting
A dedicated server is a server that is exclusively used by one organisation, as opposed to a shared server where several companies share the server’s administrative functions and security certificate. Extraordinary can set up a server entirely dedicated to your organisation. We’ll use our expertise to help you choose the server that best suits your needs.
Why choose a dedicated server?
It is not uncommon for several websites to share the same server however if your website needs a higher level of security, dedicated servers are definitely a better option. Websites requiring a unique security certificate or compliance with certain standards such as PCI/DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) will typically choose dedicated servers over shared servers. The same goes for organisations with custom software or specific database requirements that cannot be implemented on a shared server.
Outside of security and compliance, dedicated hosting also offers you more control over your website and ensures that access to your website won’t suffer from increased traffic on other websites.
We trust HPE as our partner of choice to deliver the world-class servers that we need to create the best hosting experience for you.
