HostMonster Dedicated Web Hosting

HostMonster has announced they will now be offering dedicated web hosting! This is great news for those looking for one of the best web hosts, but want more than just a shared hosting plan. HostMonster has been providing shared web hosting services to thousands of customers since 1996. As one of the top providers in the shared web hosting market they have seen great success with their shared hosting services, and it is anticipated they will have equal success with their dedicated hosting services.

Shared vs. Dedicated Hosting

For those not sure whether shared or dedicated hosting will best suit their needs, here is a little comparison. “Shared” web hosting refers to the fact that a number of customers/websites are sharing the space and resources of one server. Dedicated web hosting is when one customer, or one website, is hosted on their own server. There are pros and cons associated with both types of hosting. Shared hosting is a very cheap and easy way to create a website. However, because every website on that server is using taking up storage space, and using shared resources, it can create some issues with the way websites function (especially speed and downtime). With a dedicated server there is no risk of any other website using up too much space or affecting the way your site operates. Security and control are two of the other differences between shared and dedicated hosting services. Any time you are sharing space with others on a server you have a higher security risk than if you have your own dedicated server. While shared hosting provides all of the features and tools to simply build your own website, these tools also limit your ability to create custom websites. Dedicated hosting typically allows site owners to have “root access” which gives them the ability to have more control and add more customization to their site.

HostMonster offers all of their customers 100% toll-free in-house support for all of their web hosting needs.  But they wanted their dedicated server customers to be able to rely on specialized support so they created a separate support desk, with specially trained staff, to serve their needs.  Just like the HostMonster shared hosting plans, the dedicated server plans include a 30-day money back guarantee (prorated refunds after 30 days).  Therefore if you are not completely happy with your HostMonster dedicated server plan you can always switch back to a shared plan or get a refund.
