Website Hosting… Is there REALLY a difference?
You better believe it! Businesses and organizations of all sizes have dramatically increased reliance upon their website and email services. Therefore, any downtime can be debilitating. This is precisely the reason Absolute 0 has continued to employ the services of Rackspace Managed Hosting. We’ve utilized other hosting companies in the past – even considered switching for budgetary reasons. But every scenario led us back to the same conclusion:
While we may be able to trim some fat from the budget, can we afford to lose the reliability with service and support?
Perhaps the bigger question is, Can you?

Sometimes known as virtual hosting, this is the most basic and the most inexpensive of hosting alternatives. With shared hosting, numerous other websites are hosted on one server, sharing the cost of an Internet connection that’s generally faster and more secure than dial-up connections. A range of basic bundled services at a low monthly fee makes this a popular choice for small business websites.
While economically sound, this type of hosting typically cannot handle large amounts of storage or traffic and the provider offers little to no IT services or flexibility.
This form of hosting allows clients to lease pre-configured, high-end equipment and connectivity for their single use. This solution offers greater flexibility than shared hosting. The server is managed by Absolute 0 and in configured specifically for that clients needs. The provider, however, remains responsible for administration.
Clients using a dedicated hosting solution are typically larger clients with multiple websites or clients requiring larger amounts of space and data processing. It also requires a more significant investment of finances and time resources than shared hosting.
