Finances are tight for everyone, so when a web host offers cheap dedicated server packages it is very tempting to jump at the opportunity. If you are shopping around for a dedicated server you will know the advantages that it brings. The exclusivity of not sharing a server, the greater bandwidth, better storage and memory as well as customisation options. A dedicated server logically is more pricy that a shared server package.
It is thus in your own interest to make sure of exactly what is included in your quote for dedicated server costs. It is too late once you get the first bill and find out you were charged more than you were expecting.
Uncover hidden costs
It is your responsibility to thoroughly go through the terms of service to make sure what the web hosting package includes. This means checking on hardware, licence fees, software included as well as the fees for the management of the control panels. Make sure of the details whether you are signing up for a managed dedicated server package or not. Not everyone is aware of the differences between fully managed and partly managed dedicated servers.
Then there are also options for self managed and unmanaged dedicated server packages. It is top priority to educate yourself on exactly what these different packages entail. It is in the best interests of your business to not go simply with cheap and end up with inadequate services.
It is far more economical most of the time to take an average priced dedicated server package. The price is not the deciding factor; the quality of service and benefit outweigh the actual monthly costs, which is why at CWCS, we pride ourselves on superb customer service and the quality of our web hosting.Return to blog page
