Server hosting — FAQ
Going with web hosting or your own server depends on the complexity and the type of project as well as on your know-how and requirements.
You can rent the hardware and manage it with root access if you host with a server. It also gives you the full freedom to install your own software. Choose between VPS, cloud server, or dedicated server hosting from IONOS. All are perfect for testing various content management systems, and you can even use multiple ones at the same time. Even with complex projects, you’ll be set up for success with an IONOS server.
For a cheaper platform for your website, shared web hosting is the perfect solution. Your knowledge of maintenance, installation, and the operation of software and hardware doesn’t need to be vast. Plus, if you choose a web hosting plan, you'll be able to install a content management systems in a few clicks. This option is also more affordable and can save you money.
IONOS server hosting offers several advantages compared to having your own server.
You will never have to deal with underlying hardware, which means you won’t have to purchase, maintain or replace it. If you need more performance, you can simply tweak the settings or upgrade. The provider takes full responsibility when it comes to defective hardware, meaning you'll never have to worry about doing it yourself.
Our server hosting, hosted in our certified data centers, also relies on a fast broadband connection. Thanks to this, you'll get peak download and upload speeds around the clock. Using a your own server on the other hand means you have to rely on your own internet connection.
Backups, georedundant storage, and firewalls are security measures that come as standard with IONOS servers. You'll also benefit from state-of-the-art technologies like SIEM and IDS/IPS. These will safeguard you against data loss in case there's a natural disaster, fire, or cyberattack.
