These are some of the few questions that are there in the minds of entrepreneurs who are dependent on a computer network and web-based applications services. These centers not only go ahead and offer fast and efficient services, but also render safe and secure place to store important and critical data of a company. In simpler terminology these centers can be defined as small room or sometimes even several floors in buildings that is primarily used to house information, computer systems and other related components, including telecom and storage systems of a business.

These centers are designed to provide unmatched data security to its users. These centers have several features including, environmental controls, security features and continuous power back-up. Environmental controls are mainly meant to prevent overheating of servers and systems stationed in it, while security features and power back are to stop any unauthorized access and stoppage due to power failure respectively. It is very important for a company to keep a good infrastructure for an even flow of business functions.

A Dedicated Server can be termed as a server that is purely dedicated to a user’s website and prevents others using or sharing it. It is exclusively meant for the usage of that particular user and the entire web space is allocated to him/her. Any third-party is not allocated any kind of space on that server and is also not authorized to use it. These Dedicated Servers are generally selected by users that are expecting high volume of visitors, require large amounts of space and need a higher level of security. These servers come with a range of features that are:

  • Storage Space: These servers offer complete space to users hence leading to additional storage space to upload website pages, blogs, images, videos and databases.
