Facts You Must Know Before Using Dedicated Servers

* Switching to Dedicated Servers

A user's decision for migration to a dedicated server has multiple variables and constrains him to answer a few questions. Despite the fact that a dedicated server is superior because only that user and his business will exploit it, it's also expensive and needs someone to manage it, which also means even more money. He has to consider all those factors prior to making further plans. Next are the key aspects that anyone should keep in mind:

* Affordability

The first question that pops in mind is whether or not the server chosen is affordable. One has to do some thinking to see how much could a server cost and also to find out how much he has to pay for administration. These things can cost a lot. One has to assure that his budget allows acquiring a server before actually looking for it.

* Managed / Unmanaged

A secondary aspect to have in mind is if the user needs a managed server or an unmanaged one. If he's capable to manage it by his own he can choose an unmanaged one. Anyway, if that isn't the case then obviously the managed server is the best choice to make. These are things to keep in mind before whining due to greater requirements for the budget

* Need for additional bandwidth and space

Does the user really need more space and additional bandwidth a personal server offers? If space and bandwidth are required then he should consider doing, however if the user doesn't have sensitive data then it's pointless to spend the cash.

* Sensitive Data

Why would anyone need dedicated servers? The answer is simple: the server only holds that person's data. So, if someone has sensitive data he cannot take a chance because it's possible to get stolen, this kind of server is without any doubt the best choice.

* Options & Tools

If the user has his own dedicated server then this means that he's got an arsenal of options and tools which he can't get if he's not having a shared server at his fingertips. There aren't any restrictions with a dedicated server, so the user can do anything he wants to. That only leaves one thing that the user needs to consider: the increasing budget requirement.

The majority of providers do not allow IRC clients or bots as well as adult content (large amount of bandwidth consumption and even questionable legality) and copyrighted material which one doesn't own (copyright violation).
