HostMonster dedicated hosting is now available. For webmasters that have used HostMonster for shared hosting, the fact that HostMonster is now offering dedicated server hosting is great news! HostMonster has been around for many years and has proven how reliable their web hosting service is. When a webmaster is in need of dedicated hosting and starts the search for the best web hosting, one of the top considerations is how dependable the web hosting provider is. Choosing to go with a host that has so many years of experience is one way to ensure you are getting the best service for your individual needs.
HostMonster Dedicated Hosting
HostMonster dedicated hosting is a new service that was just recently added to the web hosting services they offer. With more than a million websites already hosted on their shared hosting servers, HostMonster is now extending their services to provide dedicated resources to those that have outgrown shared hosting. Dedicated web hosting from HostMonster will ensure the same reliable service that users have already experienced with shared hosting but have the added benefits that come with a dedicated server.
Dedicated hosting provides a customer with a server that is dedicated to the use of one client. The client can then decide how they want to use those resources. Some dedicated servers are used for a single website that has a lot of traffic and needs a lot of disk space, email, and database space. Others host numerous websites on the server but they are all their own websites that they manage. This can reduce the cost of paying for a shared hosting plan for each individual site and eliminates the risk that come with sharing a server with other webmasters that you do not know. Other benefits of dedicated hosting include root access to the server which makes it possible for the webmaster to install software, and applications, configure applications, and edit any file on the server. This administrative level access does comes with risks so be sure you know what you are doing to avoid costly service fees the host will charge you if they have to help locate and fix an error that you create.
HostMonster has three dedicated hosting plans to choose from. A special dedicated hosting promotion gives users half of the monthly free for the first month.
