A lot of the hosting solutions you see online are off-the-shelf, meaning you get certain services for a certain price. For example, getting unlimited domain hosting, unlimited storage space, unlimited file transfers, the use of Web page building tools, templates, even the software involved such as SSL, Secure Shell and FTP at a certain rate.
These packaged services are great for those who want to run a typical website using the typical tools on a typical server. Off-the-shelf hosting solutions would benefit individuals and small businesses that do not rely on their websites for revenue and other business critical tasks.
Off-the-shelf hosting solutions are usually inexpensive and getting support and troubleshooting help is typically easier. Plus, packaged hosting solutions are simpler to manage.
However, not all businesses have the same needs and you might need different kinds of services and tools from your hosting solutions provider. This is why there is a growing market for bespoke hosting solutions.
The Benefits of Bespoke Hosting Solutions
As businesses grow, their needs and requirements also grow. You will need complex solutions to be able to do more with your website and hosting.
The benefits of bespoke hosting solutions are numerous. For one, you have all the solutions you need to ensure that your site is very reliable and is up all the time.
Also, you only need to pay for services that you actually use. No more paying for solutions that you are not using but are part of the package price you pay for. On the other side of the spectrum, you could easily add on specialized services that you need such as cloud services.
Bespoke hosting solutions providers also take care of configuring, installing and managing your hosting requirements. So, you really don’t need to settle for a Windows operating system when you want Linux, nor do you need to learn server management as well, leaving you with more time to do business tasks that matters.
In some cases, you would also get better technical support because you are dealing with experts on the solutions you get. With off-the-shelf hosting providers, you may get rehearsed answers from inexperienced customer service agents who are just reading off a script that they themselves do not understand.
With an excellent provider like Dade2, you also get a hosting provider that also acts as a consultant. A good provider would give you alternatives and choices designed to make your hosting perform better and give you more for your money.
In the final analysis, bespoke hosting solutions are better in the long run because you get to save by merely getting the solutions that you actually need and use. And because your business is not just one of the thousands or millions of others using the same hosting provider, you get better performance from a provider that has a better infrastructure in the first place.
