When choosing a dedicated server, there are several things to consider: Operating System, Hardware options, Space, and bandwidth.
The Operating System of a server is similar to that on your personal computer have that enables one to perform tasks more simply.
There are many server operating systems available today including Linux-based and Windows-based software. The operating system you choose should be directly relational to what operations your server will be performing, which types of software you’ll need to install and also, what you’re more comfortable with.
Hardware Options are also something to consider when choosing a dedicated server. You’ll need to pick a processor that’s up to the task, the amount of memory you wish installed, firewall options, and the size of the hard drive.
A certain amount of bandwidth is generally included when renting or leasing a dedicated server
Once you ascertained how much bandwidth you will require, you can adjust that limit with your service provider.
- The cost factor is the most concerning factor for dedicated hosting. But cost can be amortized by having a large website.
- Security of Data and equipment.
- High Bandwidth.For transfer of data from dedicated server high bandwidth is required.
- Trust in the knowledge and integrity of the web hosting provider.
- Technical support from the web hosting provider.It should be 24/7/365.It should be easily accessible also.
- Speed and Uptime.It should be at least 99.9%.
- See if the web hosting service provider is offering round the clock customer support.
- Take reviews of the hosting company.
- Watch out for those web hosting companies that offer or boast a never-ending backup of RAM and CPU.
If the rate of a web hosting plan and the offer they put forward regarding server resources are not congruent, it can be safely assumed that the plan is a scam.
Hosting companies should provide ‘unlimited bandwidth and memory space'.
Choose the host which is relatively old in this field, because new hosts do not provide cheap plans.
