    You should keep in mind

    You should keep in mind the amount of business you face losing if your shared hosting plan cannot keep your business website up and available to your customers online all the time.

    Some of the websites might have special security needs. For instance many business owners store customer data and credit card numbers in their databases. This is critical data and there can be no comprise with it, therefore dedicated hosting is the best hosting option.

    In my opinion, the right time to upgrade to dedicated hosting is when you find that your website is getting slow or it freezes. This may happen due to huge traffic coming to your website or due to wide range of online transactions. Your website needs more resources when you notice that it is slowing down, that is the right time to upgrade to dedicated hosting.

    The dedicated hosting plans provided by Webhosting.uk.com are powered by Dell processors that will provide with higher efficiency for managing the websites. Dedicated hosting plan is the perfect solution for complex, high traffic websites that have to run complicated applications seamlessly. This is the most powerful hosting platform where uptime can be guaranteed even in the times of high traffic.

    Dedicated servers are far more superior then normal shared/vps hosting packages and are more powerful to handle huge web traffic.
    Yes, however, both plans are suitable depending on how you want to host your website. Dedicated hosting is recommended if your setup is going to be very customized, you are running specific applications, popular website or websites with heavy traffic, etc. Some users have also found shared hosting to be better than VPS. It all depends on your hosting and website requirements.

    Upgrading to a dedicated server also depends the number of websites you are hosting. If you are managing more than one website, a shared hosting service may not accommodate so much of traffic therefore it is essential to upgrade to a dedicated server if you have more than 5 websites. Dedicated servers will provide you with all the necessary resources to maintain multiple high performance websites.

    I think slowing down of a website is a good indicator of upgrading the hosting plan. If your website is overloaded with high traffic and online transactions, it is the time to upgrade to dedicated hosting as you need more bandwidth and web space.

    Fantastic
    If you want to avoid any unknown downtime which may occur due while server upgrade process then try to schedule your hosting account / server upgrade on weekends or in night when there's low traffic on your website. !!!

    Cloud is quite attractive because of the perceived flexibility. But unless you are going to use the particular advantages of the cloud, you can usually get a cheaper deal for a matching spec from a dedicated server host and many offer contracts with no minimum term so it doesn't have to be a long locking.

    Yeahl, if you go with webhost who provides you Managed Dedicated Server Hosting Services then there's no need to worry about your server management, your webhost will take care of your server and will update all required security patches and should install required applications for you. Under Managed Hosting environment you are free from hassle of server management and can concentrate more on your business !

    You can also consider Cloud Hosting Solutions which are getting more popularity and are widely used as they are much affordable with better hosting environment.

    WebhostingUK provide load-balancing support if you have one or two dedicated machines meaning that the load can be distributed between two separate machines.

    If you ever decide to purchase two or more dedicated machines, definitely take advantage of this.
    Hi,

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    I won't post a link to my site here as it might be deemed as advertising, but there is a link in my profile and it might help explain some of my comments.

    I am about to go live tomorrow and I have no customers so this is all dreaming.

    In practical terms my site is not really a web site, it is web front end on a business application, most of it is text with minimal graphics and minimal operators just staring at a screen for long time, they will; sign in, do something and sign out and I fully expect a single server to be able to serve up the web pages with resource to spare.

    If things go well and without getting boring and going into too much detail I am expecting one key table to grow at about 1Million rows per month and other to grow at about 5Million rows per month, this might give you and idea. If things went very well this would increase to 5 Million and 25 Million rows per month. This will occupy the database server pretty much full time. The current plan is to ship the transaction log from the live database server to the backup server, so it will have some spare capacity but it may not be worth the effort of trying to use it share web page serving, especially as the dedidcated servers here are so cheap.

    Thanks again for the suggestion.

    Bye

    ian
