Dedicated hosting is the Cadillac of website hosting services. You get a server all to yourself, so there’s no risk of your website being affected by other sites on the same server. This type of hosting is reserved for businesses with big hosting needs. Pros – The major pro of dedicated hosting is scalability. As your business grows and you need more bandwidth or additional storage, you can simply ask your hosting provider to upgrade your plan. Another pro is security. Since you have exclusive control over your server, you don’t have to worry about your site going down due to the traffic of other sites. Cons – The biggest con of dedicated hosting is cost. This hosting option is the most expensive of all of the hosting options we’ve discussed so far. Another con is that you have to have some technical knowledge to set up and configure your site to work on your server. If you don’t have that knowledge, you can outsource the work to a consultant or hire a full-time employee who does have the technical know-how.
