Web Hosting Info
Many of our customers want to know the advantages of reseller web vs. dedicated server hosting. Based on our experience in the industry, we have found that your choice in hosting depends on factors including cost, user skill level, and degree of control.
Reseller web hosting is by far the most inexpensive choice, given that multiple sites can be hosted on a single server or server system, and the web user on the other end of the internet has no direct way of knowing the difference. Many high end websites use shared hosting because of its scalability, unlimited bandwidth, and ease of use.
Dedicated (or managed) server hosting is a more expensive option but it provides the greatest degree of control to the user. Advanced users have the whole server to themselves and have the power to run top level applications directly on the server hardware. Dedicated server hosting is a very cost effective alternative to collocation, or purchasing servers, because HostRocket provides you with your choice of server, and you can upgrade when new server systems become available.
Whatever your choice in servers, Hostrocket makes it possible for you to have high uptime, and we use redundant OC-3 and OC-12 connections to ensure that your data makes it out to the world at large. Whether you are running a high-end database or shopping cart with thousands of individual products, HostRocket can provide the systems and support to make your web hosting experience affordable and reliable.
