Server hosting is an infrastructure delivery model that provides IT users with remote access to server resources CPU, Memory, Disk, etc. There are many benefits to server hosting , including, but not limited to, faster setup time, monthly payments instead of large capital expenditures, and ongoing upkeep so you can focus on your business as opposed to routine infrastructure maintenance. The legacy process of ordering and shipping servers to your office or data center often takes weeks, if not months. In many cases, however, hosting providers can deploy, configure and make accessible servers for remote access within minutes of ordering. Server hosting allows you to avoid large capital expenditures for hardware that depreciates over time. Instead, you simply pay a monthly server hosting fee to access the resources remotely. The payments cover things like break-fixes and other important aspects of server hosting such as the space, power and cooling the server uses. The monthly payments also include bandwidth usage. This gives IT users time to focus on projects that matter and not on the mundane task of keeping servers up and running. There are many different types of server hosting delivery models that aim to help IT users and businesses achieve varying degrees of technical and financial results.
