Your business is growing. Your website traffic is increasing. You need more IT resources to manage the increasing traffic and keep your business growing. Is a dedicated server in your future? Before beginning to choose a dedicated server for your business, you should have a clear understanding of your own requirements.
In this blog, we will discuss 5 important things you should consider when selecting a dedicated server.
What kind of services do you want to provide with your server? Understanding your performance requirements will help you determine which server is right for you. The performance also depends on the type of hardware you want to use. If you are not sure about your performance needs, Netrouting can help you meet your performance needs.
Before you select a dedicated server for your business, ensure that the hosting provider can offer technical support. A reliable, hosting provider should always be accessible via phone, chat, email or ticketing system. Make sure to check the company’s response time for resolving issues. The support staff must be on standby 24/7 and ready to support you.
How well does your application scale? Is it easy to add more resources?
As your business is growing, a dedicated server can accommodate your growing business needs. Dedicated server hosting enables businesses to control resources without any restrictions and can be upgraded or scaled back easily within the limits of your contract. For example, at Netrouting, our dedicated servers can be customized and tailored exactly to meet your specific needs.
You might need to consider your budget when choosing what best suits your business needs. When choosing a hosting provider, your budget should include the setup fees, and software licensing fees. Ask the provider if there are any upgrading fees in case you are considering an upgrade in the future.
Choosing the right hosting provider can be just as difficult as choosing the right dedicated server. Be sure the services offered fit your business needs. Make sure to check out our recent blog post: How to choose a hosting provider.
