What are the Major Issues If Dedicated Server goes down?

by Jerry Peres Domain Name Registration

A server is a computer program or a device that provides functionality for other programs or devices, called “clients”. This architecture is called the client-server model, and a single overall computation is distributed across multiple processes or devices. 

A dedicated server is a type of web hosting in which a client makes full use of the server exclusively. Having a dedicated server is more expensive as compared to a shared one, but you get an entire server to yourself. Dedicated servers keep up the speed of your website and handle extreme traffic on it.

You get a high uptime percentage, better reliability, enhanced performance, and greater flexibility on a dedicated server. It also provides a higher level of security as there is no chance of threat from your neighbouring sites because there will be no neighbour.

A dedicated server can help you run your website without any lag. It can handle your traffic and enable you to give your visitors a fast browsing experience. But what happens if it goes down? We are going to answer your concerns in this blog.

Following are the issues you may face if your dedicated hosting service goes down:

1. You will lose your traffic – If your dedicated hosting service goes down if are entitled to lose your traffic from your website. Your website will not be able to handle any amount of traffic and thus it can crash. It may erase all the data you have on your website (in case you do not have any backup of the data). If you are not fast enough to get it working again then every second that goes by you are losing one visitor.

 2. You are prone to security breaches – Your website is more vulnerable to virus attacks or unwanted malware when your server is down. You become prone to security breaches and you will start losing your files from your server; your passwords/user authentications may be changed by a trespasser. You may report any suspicious activity to your hosting company right away.

 3. You will lose your data – Hopefully you have been taking backups of all your data (either once a day or once a week), if not then you should’ve probably done that; you are going to lose much of your data due to the security breaches on your website. If it does not get recovered then your data is gone for good.

 4. Poor website performance – If your dedicated server goes down, you can bet your website is not going to work. There are only two ways it will work, either extremely slow or not at all. If your site slows down, you will lose most of your traffic, so you would need to inform your visitors that it’s just a minor error and you are working to fix it.

 5. Difficulty in restoring and recovering your site – Ideally, you will have a backup in case your site crashes or faces a security breach which may erase all of your data. You can restore your site, but know that it is a time-consuming process and by the time you are able to recover, you would have lost many of your visitors.

 While dedicated servers may give you high security and more reliability, they can be a real issue if they go down. It is meant for big websites and not for small businesses, or it can be very expensive. Since the entire server, with all its resources, is dedicated to your site only you are the one who needs to pay for everything. Therefore, it is not recommended for small websites.
