Dedicated Servers

Nivas Designs have high speed Dedicated Services, you essentially own high-quality computer housed in a state-of-the-art datacenter under top-notch security and environmental controls. This not only gives your customer the consistently greatest experience of your website, but it gives you total power and control over how that website is managed.

Dedicated Internet

Dedicated hosting also frees you from the concerns of bandwidth and disk space allotments imposed by most shared hosting plans. Remember, disk space determines how much information your site can offer, or put another way, how "big" your website can be, while bandwidth determines how much access visitors have to your site, or put another way, the size of the roads bringing traffic to and from your site.

When you own your own server, you don't have to worry about sharing any of that with anyone. That's because a dedicated server comes with its own dedicated IP address, which means its own dedicated connection to the Internet.

Server Updates

Servers need to update regularly; they need to update their own technology (i.e. their operating software) and they need to update the information that the websites they serve are providing to visitors (i.e. the "content"). When servers update, they go offline for some amount of time, often several hours, during which websites hosted by that server will not be available to visitors (barring a backup server). With shared web hosting, you generally have to accept the server update times set by your shared host; with dedicated hosting, you can set the clock for server updates to occur when it's most convenient for you and your visitors.

Dedicated Support

Nivas designs many dedicated hosting plans come with a dedicated customer support representative. This means anytime you have a concern or need assistance, you'll be dealing with the same individual, who you know by name and how to reach directly, and who's been familiar with you and your website since you started service with their company. Oftentimes, in fact, these dedicated support representatives will take you on a personal walkthrough as you set up your dedicated web hosting service on day one.

Most dedicated hosting plans, you'll get some form of remote access to your server that allows you to control it from your own computer at home or work as if you were sitting directly in front of it. Some dedicated hosts will even go so far as to give you remote access when needed to a service tech in the datacenter to act as your physical eyes and hands while you fix a technical problem requiring more in-person attention. This is of particular importance with dedicated web hosting because you, the customer, instead of the datacenter are responsible for maintaining the hardware and software running your server, down to the very cables themselves.

Having a dedicated server is kind of like having a private workshop to play with. A dedicated server allows you to experiment with different versions of your website to see which gets the greatest user response, or to explore adding different apps to your website's functionality without upsetting your whole system.

Of course, having this level of control over your dedicated server assumes that you know what to do with it. It's not enough to understand how to use web-based control panels like a shared hosting customer. Different servers run on different operating systems (e.g. Linux, Windows, CentOS etc.) and either you or someone on your staff will need to be fluent, or at least familiar, with one of the operating systems offered by the dedicated web host you choose in order for a dedicated server plan to work for you.

That also means when choosing a dedicated hosting plan be sure that the software provided is the software you know how to use, and vice-versa.
The exception to this is the occasional Managed Hosting plan offered at some sites, in which you pay for a dedicated server but get help setting it up and monitoring and maintaining it.
