If you are currently hosting with HostGator, TwoCows, GoDaddy, Blue Host or any other public hosting provider THIS BLOG IS FOR YOU!

You may wonder “What is the difference between a Public Hosting Solution and Metron’s Dedicated Hosting Solution?” Well, there is a BIG difference and we are here to help you!

First, let’s start with the basics for anyone wondering what hosting is:

A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed on the Internet. Websites are hosted or stored, on special computers called servers.(SOURCE: Website.com)

Second, let’s remind you what a domain is:

domain name is the address where Internet users can access your website .(SOURCE: Website.com)

If you have a domain you will NEED a hosting provider. The domain needs to be “parked” somewhere and your website needs to “live” somewhere. So with that analogy and basic introduction lets’ see the differences between public hosting providers and Metron.

Public Hosting Provider  

Metron Dedicated Hosting


Shared Location

your website is shared with other websites

Dedicated Location

your website does not share – it’s on it’s own

Shared Resources

CPU time, memory, and disk space

Private Resources

Dedicated space, memory, and server support 24-7

Limited Control

Shared C-Panel (cannot access)

Complete Control

Private C-Panel (24-7 access if required)

Higher Security Risks

If one site gets hacked the other sites are susceptible to the breach


If one site gets hacked no other sites can be attached or breached

Budget Friendly

Beginner style with limited control

Budget Friendly

Usually more expensive but Metron shoulders the cost of Dedicated hosting to ensure their website clients can benefit from their committed hosting.

No Technical Knowledge

The hosting provider manages every aspect of the website hosting and no ability required.

No Technical Knowledge

Normally you would require extra technical knowledge to avail of a dedicated hosting service but Metron takes care of all of this to ensure your website is safe, well managed, and optimized for your users.


As you can see we have played a little on the last two 😊 This is because we know how important it is to ensure your website’s speed, security, and support to bring confidence to your users. Never down, Never unsecure, and Always ready 24-7. We always say your website is your best salesperson – and if your salesperson is in a shared office space, sharing the phone, and sharing the desk the productivity is going to be slower. That is why Metron brings the option of a dedicated server to you!

Usually, a dedicated server can run you over $200/month! But we have shouldered the cost and offer it for about the same price as a public server. For a basic, nonecommerce website your cost will be $19.99/month including email and all the bells and whistles listed. For an eCommerce website or one that requires extra security with an SSL certificate, it will run you $24.99/month including email. ALL sites are HTTPS enabled without question as per Google’s new ranking/searching requirements.
