The advantages offered by Shared Hosting are its low price, minimum investment requirements in software and maintenance, a delegation of services in the hands of the provider, etc., but these advantages soon become an obstacle if your site and its growth.
As the number of visitors increases and the site’s sections and services grow, pages load slower and when you try to install new applications, your provider tells you that the contracted capacity and the contracted service operating system do not allow it.
When shared hosting becomes a limitation, you have to take a step forward and resort to a server that allows and guarantees an adequate service. If perhaps you find yourself in this situation, the time has come to turn to a Dedicated Server.
ServerPronto’s Dedicated Server (Dedicated Hosting) offers several advantages, among which we can highlight:

To know when to take the step towards a Dedicated Server, there are three factors to consider: The Speed, Security, and Flexibility of the Dedicated Server:
Speed: Nothing affects a site more than its slow loading. However, before moving to a dedicated server, it is advisable to test if changing to a shared server will solve the problems.
Security: A shared server can be a headache in terms of data confidentiality. This type of server necessarily implies that your site’s data will be exposed to others, either because it becomes part of the server or because, for compatibility reasons, it is necessary to cede permissions that expose your files to others. If your business requires data protection, then don’t hesitate: buy a dedicated server.
Flexibility: Shared servers are offered with a pre-established and unchangeable configuration. If you require a specific software, specific version, or a complex application, it is very possible that a shared server will not allow you to install it and that the program will not be able to run in the limited environment of Shared Hosting. On a dedicated server, you can install whatever you need.
