Big businesses requiresubstantially large bandwidth in order for their websites and all of thee-commerce and other data processing that goes with the sites to functionefficiently and without interruption or disturbance. Most of these bigbusinesses either own large and dedicated servers for all their informationtechnology needs and requirements or they have contracts with web hostingcompanies that utilize such large capacity and high bandwidth servers, which ofcourse, translate to huge monthly fees. And with the current economic downturn,even big businesses are affected such that they do their own share ofimplementing cost-cutting measures within their operations. 

 

The shift to the use of unmeteredservers instead of the conventional dedicated servers has presented acost-effective solution for many businesses that have the requirement for largeamount of bandwidths but without worrying about overage fees. This particulartype of server charges fees to a client for up-link speed instead of the data transfer.Monthly fees or charges are not based on measured bandwidth but by networkconnection speed ranging from 10Mbps to 100Mbps depending on the client’srequirements. Such network connection speed is satisfied by using dedicatedconnections which can accommodate any bandwidth intensive application. 

 

Using unmetered servers isa good and cost-effective choice for website owners who require high bandwidth mainlydue to large file transfers. Some of the benefits that can be enjoyed by usingthese connection-based dedicated servers include unlimited bandwidth, nooverage fees, nearly zero downtime, improved security and faster download timeof website and web pages. This means one will never have to worry aboutbandwidth overuse and instead will have a significantly high performing server.Where conventional servers necessitate expensive data transfer especially forinstances when the allotted bandwidth is exceeded, this specific unmeteredserver does not charge for any data transfer usage.

 

Web hosting companiesusually offer two types of services for an unmetered server – one with a sharedconnection, and the other with a dedicated connection. For most businesses withlarge data, the latter would be the wise and ideal choice, where a flat feewill be paid monthly and there is no limit to the amount of bandwidth that canbe used. The connection speed can range from 5 mbit, 10mbit, 100mbit up to1gbit. This is in contrast to the other type which a connection is shared withother servers. This type limits the connection speed as it will depend on howmany servers are sharing the connection. Shared connection is more affordablethan dedicated connection.

 

The demands of justabout any bandwidth are undoubtedly satisfied by dedicated connections. A hightraffic website will do well in terms of providing excellent user experience toits clients with an unmetered server. This factor alone accounts for thesuccess or failure of some websites and a website that does not load quickenough or shift from one page to the other in just a few seconds can face userabandonment. The way to grow your online business is to make sure that yourclients are satisfied with their experience with your website. A slow andinterrupted loading website will not achieve this.
