However, it becomes easier, if you carry one a thorough check on the services offered by the hosting services. It includes server, hardware specification, data center and redundancy issues, contract and billing, and services and supporting services.
Check and make sure that your dedicated server is a single computer dedicated to your services only and under your direct control. Unlike shared hosting resources that are shared by more than one customer a dedicated server exclusively runs for you.
Server specifications need to match your workload. Make sure that the provider understands your needs and workload and offers you a package accordingly. It needs to contain CPU, RAM, Storage size and RAID.
The difference between a professional and cheap dedicated hosting depends on the reliability of service provided by hosting services. Look for a hosting provider who takes care of network latency, data center cooling methods and network redundancy. Working with redundant hardware and software is not professional.
Period of Contract
Contract depends on the necessity, there is no minimum or maximum period to end the contract. Try and enter into a contract that is flexible and allows you to upgrade the hardware or migrate, depending on your needs.
It is very essential to have a dedicated hosting service that gives you complete support. A reliable dedicated hosting service has a group of specialized system administrators in virtualization, configuration of a database, security for a website and business continuity to help the clients as when there is a need for their skills.
