When businesses expand, there comes the need to increase your resources for effective running of the organization. It is not possible for any company to scale up their business without investing further in other required resources.
When you deal with thousands of requests per second and terabytes of traffic per day, you have to get rid of your existing shared hosting plan and shift to a dedicated server with high end configuration so as to meet your high requirements.
You will need to change your existing web hosting plan when you are considering scaling up your business. With a rapid growing market and online traffic, it is important you get rid of the existing shared hosting scheme you are subscribed to and obtain a dedicated server for your company.
Firstly, what is a dedicated server?
A server that is hosted by a company and only allows a single organization to lease and access the same is called a dedicated server. It is 'dedicated' because it belongs to the one client and is not shared with any other clients. Dedicated servers usually allow the client to choose what operating system needs to be installed on it and the type of hardware. In some cases, as an add-on service, the hosting company will provide administration i.e. managed services for the client, freeing the client from being bothered about the same.
With Dedicated hosting, you have full control of the physical server, and complete access to all its resources. With Dedicated Server hosting, since you aren't sharing resources with other customers, you have access to more computing power than you do with other basic shared hosting solutions.

So, with increasing traffic and security needs for your website you have to switch to a faster, more secure means of web hosting which is called a dedicated server. With a dedicated server, you can utilize the entire server’s resources and they are not shared with any other website as is the case in a shared environment.
The companies can also scale up their hardware and software specifications as per their convenience and are charged accordingly. From the softwares or applications that need to be running on your server to the firewalls to be installed, you get to decide everything.
All this and more, makes dedicated server hosting the best web hosting solution for any company which is looking for or is in the process of expansion.
