    1) How much you have a budget
    2) How much traffic driven per month

      Some tips for the baseline qualities you need to look for in dedicated server hosting provider:

      1. Processor: How powerful you want the server to be?
      For virtualization, video-transcoding, SQL, or specialized applications like chat servers, you need a Xeon or dual Xeon server.

      2. Bandwidth: After having an idea of the traffic to your website, decide on the bandwidth required. If your website sees high traffic, go for more bandwidth. If you plan to run scripts, have HD pictures, or stream multimedia files, then go for high bandwidth servers.

      3. Memory: Memory is important in order to decide the efficiency of your server and faster loading of your website. More RAM = Better Speed.

      4. OS: Depending upon your needs, decide if you want a Windows dedicated server or Linux dedicated server. You must also take into account the type of your application.

      5. Storage: Know your data storage requirements of your website. You can pick from several hard drive options. Usually, RAID is preferred because if there is a hardware failure, all your data will be lost. RAID is critical for mirror copying. best dedicated server

      6. Application: You need a Windows Dedicated Server if you are looking to host MS SQL, The Official Microsoft ASP.NET Site or Microsoft IIS. Go for Linux Server if you use LAMP or MEAN stack or an application that does not need a specific Microsoft license.

      7. Security: Before choosing a dedicated server hosting, you need to ask questions related to access to data, power supply, hardware, fire protection, building, data privacy etc.
