What Everybody Ought to Know Before Purchasing a Dedicated Server
All too often we see prospective clients (and rival companies) too focused on hardware specifications (CPU, RAM and size of HDD). Regardless of how powerful your new dedicated server specs are on paper, a weak link, like poor facility support or a mismatch to your “perceived” Server requirements, may ruin your selection. When you’re comparing different server providers, there are some VERY important questions you should ask before pulling the trigger. Knowing what questions to ask of their sales associates begins with YOU laying out realistic expectations of what you plan on doing with that server.

Some Basic Questions to Ask
Does the specific dedicated server listed on their site (that caught your eye) match up well – to the operating system, applications and platforms that you intend to run on that server, NOT just for the next year, but over the next few years as you envision your business growing? Give their sales representative as much ammunition as possible so they can recommend a workable SOLUTION that matches your requirements – and then compare their response.
Are managed services available?
Are you technically competent at managing the security, firewalls, applications and programs on a dedicated server? Sometimes, it’s best to leave those tasks to the experts that live and breathe information technology.
Does the Server provider offer a Service Level Agreement (SLA)?
Keep in mind, most SLA’s won’t cover any losses you may incur in sales. If your server went down for four hours, a credit on your account for a few bucks won’t cover your losses. Which leads to the next question.
Does their network infrastructure have multiple carriers and are they BGP4 optimized?
Ask as well who their carriers are and the saturation levels of each. BGP version 4 permits an aggregation of routes, including AS paths. Why is this important? If your provider only contracts with Cogent, Level 3 Communications, Verizon Business, Sprint or any number of other backbone carriers AND that connection goes down – YOU go down.
Does the dedicated server provider offer onsite technical support 24/7/365?
If your server ever went down, would someone be available at their facility to not only talk to, but actually resolve your specific issue OR would they have to pass the ticket on to a level two or three technician who may not be in until normal business hours. This becomes especially critical if you’re running a busy e-commerce site or an intranet for a multi-million dollar company.
Does the provider offer any backup solutions?
The “Terms of Service” for most providers make it very clear that their clients are responsible for their own backups, however some do offer a variety of paid backup solutions. Unfortunately, statistics for companies that lose their data reflect overwhelmingly that they’ll go out of business within one year. Whether the provider you ultimately go with offers backup services or not, BACKUP YOUR DATA!
