How a Dedicated Server Can Improve Customer Experience

August 2016

Do you run a business that has a significant online presence? Perhaps you even have your own eCommerce store that you rely on for a portion (or all) of your company’s profits. If you haven’t already made the switch to a dedicated server, now is the time to consider it. After all, there are many ways in which a dedicated server can improve your customer experience and possibly boost sales as a result.

Understanding Hosting Options

First of all, let’s take a moment to review your hosting options. Essentially, you have three major options to choose from:

  • Shared hosting: where you share your CPU time, disk space, memory, and other hosting features with other businesses as a means of reducing costs.
  • VPS hosting: where you essentially own and manage your own server, but in a pool-like setting where some resources are shared by other businesses or clients. This gives you a little more flexibility and power than you would have with shared hosting, but it also comes with more responsibility.
  • Dedicated hosting: you don’t share your hosting resources with anybody; instead, you have your own dedicated host and retain the most power.

Many businesses find that dedicated hosting is their best option, and that a dedicated server for eCommerce is essentially a must in today’s competitive market.

Quicker Page-Load Times

The main way in which having a dedicated server may improve your customer experience is by speeding up your page-load times. When customers visit your website, they won’t be as likely to be frustrated by slow page-load times, which can otherwise lead would-be customers to leave your site in frustration. Faster navigation of your site means customers can quickly and easily make purchases.

Less Concern Over Downtime

If you’ve ever experienced downtime within your business website, then you know just how devastating this can be to your bottom line. With a dedicated server, you can enjoy less downtime and greater reliability. In fact, ReliableSite’s dedicated servers even come with a 100% uptime service level agreement for your added peace of mind.

Focus More on Your Own Business

When you choose a dedicated server, you have the option to retain a great deal of control over the server or you can opt for a system administrator to take care of many aspects of managing your server. By taking advantage of this option, you can save yourself valuable time and spend more of your time focusing on running your business, rather than worrying about IT.
