- How to upgrade from shared hosting to a Dedicated or Cloud server.
- Enhanced Performance: Migrating to a Dedicated or Cloud server, gives you access to dedicated resources that ensure optimal performance, improved website speed, and a seamless user experience.
- Scalability and Flexibility: Dedicated and Cloud hosting gives the freedom to scale resources up or down based on your requirements, accommodating increased traffic, storage needs, and application demands.
- Enhanced Security: Moving to a Dedicated or Cloud server provides enhanced security measures, including isolated environments, robust firewalls, and the ability to implement customised security configurations, ensuring the protection of your data and applications.
- Improved Control and Customisation: A self-managed Dedicated or Cloud server grants you control over the server environment, allowing customisation, software installations, and configurations tailored to your needs.
- Reliability and Stability: Shared hosting can be susceptible to performance issues due to resource contention caused by other users on the same server. By switching to a Dedicated or Cloud server, you experience increased reliability and stability, as you are not impacted by the activities of other users. This translates to improved uptime and a more reliable online presence.
- Advanced Features and Technologies: Dedicated and Cloud server solutions offer access to advanced features and technologies that are not available in shared hosting environments. This includes options like load balancing, database clustering, content delivery networks (CDNs), and more, enabling you to leverage cutting-edge tools to enhance your website's performance and user experience.
- Disk Space: By upgrading to a Dedicated or Cloud server, you gain access to ample disk space tailored to your specific requirements. This allows you to store and manage a larger volume of files, databases, and other resources.
