If your project with high traffic generates a large load, or requires increased security or non-standard settings – it is time to think about renting a dedicated server in Cyprus.
What is it: a dedicated server?
This is a full-fledged server of the selected configuration, with an installed operating system and remote control, on which you can place your project and do, by and large, whatever you want. Servers are installed in a special place, the so-called data center.
This is a place with the necessary microclimate and good Internet channels with a mandatory backup of all components that will allow your server to work reliably and quickly.
Advantages of a dedicated server in Cyprus
A dedicated server is a compromise type of hosting between shared hosting and a physical server. If you use conventional shared hosting, then more than 1,000 websites can be placed on one server, distributing all the resources of this server to each other. In case of a DDoS attack on any of the websites, there is a possibility of failures in the work of all other websites hosted on this server. Conventional hosting is easier to maintain and a little cheaper than renting a dedicated server today. But for successful business, you must approach the choice of a physical server with full responsibility.
Regarding the speed with which the server responds to requests, it changes due to those factors that affect the operation of other websites. For example, loading your website may take longer if the server is loaded with requests to another website. You will not be able to control this situation when you use shared hosting.
Shared hosting cannot provide full access to the OS and installed programs. The need for a dedicated physical server is manifested in the desire to install and run its own special or customizable software or the need to transfer the database.
When the number of visitors to your website increases, and with it both traffic and system requirements for software performance, you will need to upgrade the server. If you use a regular server, you will not be able to take full advantage of the possibilities of upgrading the server. On such a hosting, you will have the opportunity to increase the disk space for the website, and that’s all. You will not have the opportunity to upgrade the operating system, RAM, hard drive or programs. You can independently solve these problems. Using a physical server in Cyprus you can solve this problem on your own.
The security level of conventional hosting is not as great as that of a dedicated server in Cyprus. In case of damage to the website, which is also located on this server, you too may be at risk. This server can act as a secure firewall, with which you can control all accesses and passwords. If you store a lot of very important information on the server, then high data security should be in the first place.
VPS in Cyprus
Virtual hosting that does not have great computing capabilities is suitable for simple projects. However if you have a more serious project, for example, an online store, you should think about a more stable platform.
VPS emulates the operation of a real server. That is, you have one physical dedicated server, which, thanks to the emulator, is divided into several virtual ones. Unlike shared hosting, this service provides full access to the server (its emulation). That is, by ordering a VPS, you get root rights, full access to the software (you can change the operating system, install the necessary programs and extensions). The virtual private server also has its own IP address, ports, and routing tables. VPS is more stable compared to shared hosting and has lower price compared to the pricing policy of dedicated physical servers. In addition to the above advantages, a virtual private server has the advantage of backup. It is enough to make a general backup of the system, and all your data will be safe.
