While dedicated hosting provides the web server with exclusive access that is highly beneficial for the plan holder. However in most of the cases such wide span of resources might not be required. Here is an insight on three main activities that are suitable for dedicated hosting. Activities similar to these might also be considered for dedicated hosting. The activities mentioned bellow will give you a clear picture about on what instances dedicated hosting required and the ways in which this efficient hosting platform can be utilized in the best possible way.

Software Testing

Dedicated hosting provides with a customizable server environment, through which the root of the server can be accessed for the purpose of software configuration modification. In contrast to that the other forms of hosting like shared hosting and even some VPS hosting plans, do not provide the access to the server root and therefore the webmaster has to be limited only to some specific operating system. This can be an issue for the software developers who are working on creating a product that is compatible with multiple operating systems. Dedicated hosting provides with the perfect platform to enhance compatibility by providing the webmasters the ability to install new software applications. It also enhance productivity by expediting simultaneous requests of the servers that are used for software testing and operation. The Linux dedicated server plans are specifically beneficial for the software developers, as Linux is based on the open source technology that is customizable.

Search Engine Optimization Automation

A robust automated software framework is for performing the usual search engine tasks like building backlinks, improving the page rank of the website, distributing promotional content for their clients across the web and other such activities. If you are into the business of search engine optimization and as it grows you need a strong hosting plan in order to fulfill the needs of your clients, therefore undoubtedly you will require the power of a dedicated server. While a lot of search engine optimization companies use the comprehensive VPS hosting plans, a dedicated hosting plan will give you the redundancy, power, privacy and security for ensuing the long term success of your search engine optimization business.

Creating And Managing Large Networks


Automated website creation is gaining a lot of popularity, this gives the ability to the webmasters to establish a wide range of websites within a short span of time. In many cases the webmasters don’t realize how fast they exceed their hosting plans in terms of the bandwidth and disk space capabilities. Every website is backed by databases that consume some amount of disk space, and with each new site comes more web traffic, which consumes bandwidth. Dedicated servers give you all the power needed to create and manage an extensive network of websites and related databases without compromising performance and reliability. With a dedicated server you'll be able to focus on expanding your network as fast as possible with new content, and raising traffic levels, without having to worry whether your hosting plan will be able to accommodate the changes.


Dedicated hosting is the best suite for the activities mentioned above as they require a wide span of hosting resources for carrying out their business activities smoothly. Business similar to these would also benefit from dedicated hosting. Signing up with the best dedicated hosting company is also a very important aspect to be considered before investing in dedicated hosting.
