Reasons to choose a cheap dedicated server

There are several reasons why you may want to go with a cheap dedicated hosting. Here are some of them:


Big website: This is a common problem. You may have a site that is too large for a VPS or shared hosting package, but not yet earning enough to afford a high end dedicated server. You may not want to spend a large sum of money to host such site. For those who only have a few thousand visitors/day, this works great for you. Many cheaper dedicated servers only cost $50-100/month. This is very doable for many sites.

Tight budget: As it often happens, you may just don’t have the money to buy an expensive server: we understand that money is a concern and if you don’t have the budget for a large dedicated server, you can choose a cheaper option and it may serve your needs great as well. Many people use a smaller dedicated server for less money as a segway into a large solution when needed in the future.

If you want to learn server administration: This is for those who want to “play” with a dedicated server for development or educational purposes. For those looking for this type of solution, a cheap dedicated server is a great choice.
