What Should be Kept in Mind While Selecting a Dedicated Server?

24 Mar

The dedicated server is the one which requires less support and the other kinds of services which are present in a dedicated server are way better than the managed dedicated servers. Now, though it is always advisable to have your exchange email hosting on a dedicated server but still the server which is managed provides more support and services. Normally the managed server has got a target client base which consists of people who are technically challenged or have limited technical knowledge. On the other hand the dedicated server in India works well with big business houses (who have a separate and dedicated IT team) and big website companies.
Dedicated Server
The basic management of server involves paying attention to the following things:

  • Amenities for firewall
  • Safeguarding software from any type of spam.
  • Providing tech support
  • Modification of the applications on a regular basis
  • Modernizing the OS (operating system) regularly
  • Fixing and configuring any kind of new software
  • Preserving regular backups and re-establishment of data in case of data loss
  • Observing of the server
  • Supervising and giving access as per the requirement of the users
  • DNS Hosting
  • Antivirus updating at regular interim’s
  • Any other kind of discussion service that could be requisite

Thus, no matter whether you have a Dedicated Server Hosting, cloud server hosting or a shared server hosting; it is important that you do take proper care of the server and work on the above stated list of items. Any kind of lackadaisical attitude towards the server might lead to crashing of the server and that would make you suffer huge losses of important data across the board.

In the end, would conclude by saying that a dedicated server is a very important service for a business, so if you are looking forward to buy one, make sure that you buy from the best in the market.

Lot of times people face  dilemma when it comes to getting a server. The question that lies in front of them is whether they should rent a shared server or rent a dedicated server or may be even buy a dedicated server? This question can be easily answered by an expert, and so can be done by you too. Supposedly, you are into a business where if the server crashes or it faces some issues, then that would make you incur huge loses. In such a scenario it is advisable that you should have a dedicated server at your disposal on which you can not only move your data traffic but also configure your exchange email hosting.

Also with a dedicated server, one will get more time to put into different aspects of business rather than trying to trouble shoot problems that occurs with the server. But on the other hand, a rented server will always cost you way less and thus you’ll end up saving your capital which you would need to spend if you get a Cloud Dedicated Server Hosting Service.

So, the point is that a server which is totally dedicated for your work is only required depending on the kind of job you are into and if not having the same will hamper your business and revenues in a negative manner. Though techs always advise that you should have a Dedicated Server of your own as that gives you more freedom over the way it works plus you would be able to squeeze out more benefits from it.
