What is Premium Dedicated Hosting?
When you visit a website what you are actually looking at is a lot of code, it doesn’t really matter what that code is, (traditionally it is HTML or PHP mixed with some Java Script and CSS), but that code has to live somewhere. In reality it lives on a website server; that is a high specification computer installed with an operating system and applications that allow it to “serve” website pages over the internet to your computer. Once that code arrives at your computer another application (your web browser) displays the code in a way that allows humans to make sense of it. That code is exactly what is allowing you to read this information right now, the website server that is sending it to you is housed in a data centre in the United Kingdom and CTS are charged monthly for the usage of that server and its resources including the electricity it uses and the internet connection that allows you to find it on the internet.
Shared hosting is where several websites are located on the same server and that server “serves” the relevant pages to you the website visitor. The advantage of using a shared server is that because it houses several websites they servers owner share the costs between all of the website owners. The dis-advantage is that if any one or more of those websites is popular the strain on the server means that the delivery of information from that server is slow to all the different website users.
With dedicated hosting one server delivers only one website, as a result when that website is being visited by thousands of visitors its performance is dedicated to delivering information to those visitors and as a result it responds better than a shared server. The disadvantage is that the server owner can’t share the cost of running the server with anyone else and as a result the website owner gets all of the cost.
