Many options in terms of facilities confuse the users to choose for the best option among them. Similar is the condition in choosing for the best web hosting option for the business establishment from a variety of options available. Dedicated web hosting has been in use for a long time but the introduction of the concept of cloud hosting in the IT sector had compelled the users to think for the best to be used for this purpose. Thus, you should comparatively study the features of both the services to choose for the best for your organization.

Both the hosting services can be studied on the basis of various features like:

Dependability: Cloud servers are usually free from failures in the hardware as they are a group of interlinked servers. But, as cloud servers are used by several users at a time therefore individual user has least control on them during long downloading of queries as the server slows down whereas dedicated server remains completely under the control of user.

Simply usable: The non requirement of additional hardware for cloud servers make it more simple to use it as you can add or remove any server if required easily by using control panel which is not possible in dedicated hosting server.

Scalability: cloud hosting provide vast scalability to the users that has given a great popularity to this concept as they can scale down the servers which are not in use, which is not possible with dedicated servers.

Need of hardware or OS: cloud computing or cloud hosting does not need any additional OS or hardware to host the websites which makes it inconvenient for the users if they are in need to upgrade a software or hardware to their system. It is possible with dedicated web hosting option.

Reasonability: small establishments find dedicated hosting server as reasonable for them as they have to use it for limited purposes whereas cloud hosting and cloud servers are beneficial for large establishments as they have to use the web servers extensively.

Thus, it is not possible for a business to rationalize the use of any of the two systems for their progress as it depends on the individual decision of the business owner. Everyone uses the hosting systems as per their requirements and the trend of business activities. One should choose from cloud hosting and dedicated hosting systems on the base of individual needs of the business.
