What to Expect from a Managed ReliableSite Server  

When initially exploring your options for a dedicated server, you’ll need to make a lot of important decisions before you’ll be able to get your server all set up and running. From deciding on how much bandwidth you need, to choosing between SSD and HDD storage, there’s a lot to consider. One of the more important decisions you’ll make, however, is whether to opt for a managed server and, if so, what type of operating system you wish to run your server on.

Windows Server vs. Linux Server: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to dedicated hosting, you generally have two options to choose from: A Windows server or a Linux server. The difference between the two rests in which operating system your server runs on. There are certainly pros and cons to each option. For example, most people are more familiar with the Windows operating system than they are with Linux, so from a comfort standpoint, Windows is a natural choice for some.

On the other hand, a Linux server can offer a number of benefits, including enhanced security and a reduced risk of data breaches or other vulnerabilities.

Small Business Server Hosting Solutions

Regardless of whether you opt for a Windows or Linux server, you have other options to choose from once you get your hosting plan set up. For example, one of the many small business server hosting solutions we offer here at ReliableSite is that of managed hosting plans. With a managed hosting plan, you can have an experienced team of server administrators take care of the most important aspects of day-to-day maintenance on your server.

Managed hosting plans are very popular among small business owners because they can save a great deal of time in terms of server maintenance. When you run a small business, you have enough on your plate. So not having to worry about managing your own dedicated server can be extremely helpful and will allow you to focus on other aspects of growing your business.
