Linux isn't the only option for dedicated servers -- in fact, Windows dedicated hosting is quickly becoming a popular solution. There are many advantages to Windows dedicated servers, both in terms of usability and security. Here are a few reasons why you might choose Windows dedicated hosting, in addition to the advantages that ReliableSite can offer.

Four Features That Set Apart Our Dedicated Servers

1. Free, Standard DDoS Protection DDoS attacks are becoming more common. Whether it's an attempt to break through your security or just disrupt your website, a single DDoS attack can cost you thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Our services come with free, standard DDoS protection -- to identify and mitigate potential DDoS attempts. When a DDoS attack is detected, malicious traffic will be automatically refused.

Do I Need Dedicated Hosting?

As your company grows larger, it becomes more likely that you'll need dedicated hosting. Whether you're hosting corporate applications or a company website, a dedicated server provides you with reliable, scalable resources. Here's how you can tell whether you've outgrown your current shared service. The Benefits of Dedicated Hosting When choosing between server hosting options, you have the option of "shared" or "dedicated" services. A shared service runs multiple clients on a single machine, with resources being split between each client. A dedicated service runs a single client on a single machine, giving that single client additional resources as well as providing better security. On a technical level, dedicated hosting provides more control over your server environment. Your IT team will be able to install applications more freely on a dedicated server and will be able to install more advanced applications due to the additional resources available. A dedicated server
