How much does a dedicated server cost ?
« on: January 27, 2012, 04:28:53 AM »
How do we decide that we need a dedicated server or not ? What are the basic plans ? How much will it cost ?

Decision is very easy, if your site has good traffic and your shared host is either too slow or switching you OFF due to resource usage then time to move, other reason can be if you need something specific.
Generally basic servers are not very costly, cost somewhere new $100 to start but powerful or decent server generally cost way more than that.

Thanks Jaffery.

Can we compare the current server and a dedicated server offered ? Do they charge more for bandwidth if we use a dedicated server ? Basic servers are too basic ? I mean it may not give an advantage and will be just  a dedicated server ?

If you've decided to go for a dedicated server, I highly suggest Liquid Web. Let me know what you decide to do.

Thanks Scrubsy. I am still unclear about the idea. I mean if just getting any dedicated server can bring a great difference in site loading speed, then it is a good thing. But cost also matters, if it is too much compared to shared servers, not sure if we would be really needing it. That is why I was checking if we can compare the current setup and the setup offered. How do we check such things ? Just page loaded in so and so seconds etc ?

Faster webpage (in most of the cases) is one of the advantage dedicated server offers as then all resources will be used for your own site only. Regarding dedicated server, you can also go for VPS to start things, those are virtual small server running on one big / powerful server.
Liquid web is good option however, our company also provide webserver to large enterprises, we are however working to launch solution for small business too. So if you need anything, you can ask me also.

Thanks. Could you give a rough idea about pricing ? Data storage and bandwidth or any other specs we should know.

I'm not sure about pricing but the TAZ hosting in $100 so I'm guessing about $50 (this is just to set it up)

No I'm mean the hosting that TAZ uses. Also a dedicated server will cost about $35 to $50 per month.

Hi,
If you are having more than 150 pager in your website and you have more Viewers you can use Dedicated servers.There are many plans in Dedicated servers But basic plan is Economy plan which I am Using in the site http://www.thewebpole.com/  at just $69.99.The plan includes
 OS: Linux CentOS 64-Bit
 CPU: Intel® Core™ i3 - 2 cores
 RAM: 2 GB
 Storage: 2 x 160 GB hard drives
