What benefits will I see by upgrading to a dedicated server?
I'm currently on a shared host and see an average bounce rate of 60-63% on about 100kUVs per month. I would like to cut this in half. What sort of benefit would I receive, if any, from upgrading to a dedicated server? Would my site load time even decrease at all?
I'm thinking about going with the basic dedicated plan:
As a separate question, I am thinking about having the site rebuilt in Ruby in order to improve user experience. I've heard that Ruby is a much slower language - would I just be taking step backwards?
I appreciate any advice you fellas can give me.
