Not everyone can be on a shared hosting plan. Some Websites require their own dedicated
Web server be it due to volume of traffic, volume of data being exchanged, or their
solution requires special system configurations and 3rd party software to get them
to where they want to be.
Leasing your own dedicated server puts you in full control of your operations nearly
from top to bottom. The only problem is you need someone to administer and maintain
that system for you.
TConsult, Inc. works exclusively with the Microsoft technologies and Microsoft's Internet
Information Server (IIS) - also referred to at times as Windows Server. We have
worked with IIS and we have managed IIS servers for clients since 1997.
Some Notes About IIS Management
Managing a IIS server is not an involved process after the initial set-up. Clients
should not expect that the management of IIS requires attention on a daily basis.
Once configured properly they are very stable systems.
Over the years hardware (chips, RAM, drives) have become more and more powerful.
It is not uncommon for a dedicated Web server with IIS to not only host your Websites
but your SQL Server database and your mail server as well. We have vast experience
with multi-service dedicated systems and this is now common practice.
The full-scale dedicated Web server is not a major requirement as it was just a
few years ago as Cloud Hosting (the process of taking one Web server and splitting
it in to several) has become more popular and cost-effective. Getting your own dedicated
cloud is just like having your own dedicated Web server permitting you go with a
cloud provider that offers a fully dedicated cloud that has no restrictions.
TConsult, Inc. DOES NOT have our own hosting facility. Instead we make recommendations to
clients for reputable hosting companies that offer dedicated systems with a proven track
record of trust and reliability.
Data back-ups normally incur additional fees when using dedicated systems.
