Things to ask when you get a dedicated hosted server

Here is a list of things that I feel you should ask your dedicated windows server hosting company:

  • Windows Update : should be active 
  • Uptime : obvious
  • Backup : do they have RAID 
  • Specs : Processor / RAM / HDD Space | RPM 
  • Remote Desktop : A GUI helps 
  • Admin Rights : you just might need them
  • Latency : Between you and the server and between the server and the customer
Enjoy!
