Redundant Hosting and Why Your Dedicated Server Needs It

January 2017

If you’re in the market for a dedicated server, there’s a lot to consider before you agree to a contract. One aspect you won’t want to overlook as you shop around for a dedicated server is that of security and reliability. Specifically, when it comes to reliability, you can’t go wrong in selecting a dedicated server provider that has redundant hosting in place.

What Is Redundant Hosting?

Redundant hosting refers to a dedicated server that’s hosted inside a data center that has back-ups and redundancies in place to keep your server up and running in even the most extreme conditions. For example, if a power supply within your dedicated server’s data center fails, redundant hosting would mean that there would immediately be a back-up power supply in place to prevent any downtime or other problems on your part.

Why Redundancies Matter

When you decide to go with a dedicated server, the main reason you do it is likely because you want a reliable server that you don’t have to worry about being bogged down by heavy traffic or poor connectivity issues. When you choose a server with redundant data centers, you can pretty much guarantee reliable up-time, which is important regardless of whether you’re using your dedicated server for gaming or even hosting your company’s website.
