Your ecommerce website is your livelihood. Downtime and slow page loads translate directly into lost sales and lower search rankings. If you're serious about your business, you can't afford to use shared hosting. Only a dedicated server with SSD storage can provide maximum performance to keep your magento website up and running even during the peak season.
I wouldn't want you to miss out on the opportunity to see increased performance, uptime, and most importantly, higher sales. Keep reading to learn more about why an IOFLOOD dedicated server is your best option for hosting your magento website.
You may wonder, with every hosting company out there selling $9 hosting accounts, why should you get a dedicated server? The truth is, for some users, a $9 hosting account is perfectly fine. For running websites for fun, if the page loads a little slow or the website is down sometimes, that's not a big deal. For serious businesses however, these problems translate directly into lost revenue.
The reason a dedicated server is a must for an ecommerce site is simple. With shared hosting, there are hundreds of people sharing a single server. If any one of those people does anything intensive, such as backing up their data, running a large database query, or simply if they have a lot of visitors to their website, performance can slow to a crawl for everyone. To save money, hosting providers put as many customers on a server as possible, which makes this problem come up very frequently.
A dedicated server on the other hand, has resources just for you. All of the ram, cpu, and disk on a single server is dedicated only to your website. Peak season? Not a problem. Because you have an entire cpu and disk to yourself, there is more than enough performance to handle any spike that comes along.
A dedicated server does cost more than shared hosting. But for an ecommerce site, losing even one sale can often cost more. Hosting your magento website on a fast dedicated server is the easiest way to increase the speed and uptime of your website -- and increase revenue and profits along the way.
SSDs, also known as solid state drives, use memory chips instead of spinning platters to store data. Because of this, they are more than 100 times faster at quickly reading and writing small files. This is exactly the kind of usage you would see from a high performance database such as when running a magento website.
SSDs can improve performance for all kinds of websites, but the improvement is even more noticeable with magento. This is because magento is very database intensive, reading and writing data constantly to your mysql database with every pageview. In order to maintain acceptable performance, SSD storage is a must.
The good news is that SSD drives have come down in price dramatically. Because we are a smaller more flexible hosting company than our competitors, IOFLOOD is able to offer prices on fast SSD drives that is lower than many providers charge for slower mechanical hard drives.
