Hi guys,

I'm curious what would be the behavioral model of those who need to get a Dedicated server? Do you guys decide based on the price or you also check the provider's network and ask questions about its data center, Internet connectivity, etc.?

I have never checked provider's network , data center, Internet connectivity when asking to buy a dedicated server. I only care how many RAM, CPUs, type of disk (SSD or HDD) that I will have.

In contrast to @David Beroff, I was always concerned most with the network performance and reliability first and foremost. Once comfortable with a host's network credentials and reputation, then we would consider the physical attributes of the server.

For us, we were using these servers to host our clients' hosting accounts and VM's, which is why the network reliability was a priority in our decision. There are plenty of use-cases for both arguements, however. @David Beroff What are you using dedicated servers for, if you wouldn't mind sharing?

@HostColor, great question. Thanks for the thought-provoking and discussion-provoking topic.

I like to do this but how to check provider's network is good or not? Do they really provide real information for us?
