It’s one thing to know that you need a dedicated server hosting. Registering the right plan is a completely different matter. Make sure they deliver the following before you select a hosting provider:
- Garantie for uptime: Imagine if a visitor just came on your website to find that it was not loaded. That might mean a lot of money lost, depending on your business. Most hosting companies today offer a minimum uptime of 99.6 percent – but this number should be even higher for dedicated server hosting.
- Customization: The freedom to customize the server in almost every way you like is one of the best parts of having dedicated server hosting. Find out if your provider will allow you to select an OS, allocate space, or add custom software and applications. Often hosting services will offer private servers that are still shared with other users – it’s a big red flag not being able to customize that’s the case.
- Protection: Overall, dedicated server hosting is inherently more secure than both shared servers and VPS – but this does not mean they are not vulnerable to hackers. Ensure that your hosting service provides security software, including configurations for firewalls, malware protection, and more.
- 24/7 customer support: You should get outstanding customer support when you pay big money for a premium service. This means that you can call whenever you have a question and talk to a living human being. Look for a 24/7 hosting provider, 365 days a year.
How much does a hosting package for a dedicated server cost?
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution here, unfortunately. How much the price of a contract can vary considerably depending on the provider and the features you need. In general, however, for a dedicated server hosting, you should expect to pay $90 + per month.
Generally speaking, the lower the costs, the fewer resources available to you. As the plan’s cost increases, so the RAM and bandwidth available.
The dedicated server is one that can grow with you, starting with room for your current website. Search for a company that offers a range of packages with reasonable rates.
