Common extra dedicated server features

Brazilian money
An unmanaged dedicated server is almost like a bare-bones computer. While you get all of the essentials required to call it a server, there are many features that you will want to add. Some of them are free and/or open source, while some require purchase or even subscription services. It is important to know this before getting a dedicated server, thinking that you are getting a complete product.

A good web host will list some of their extra available features, including prices. Here is a brief list of options you might want:

  • cPanel or other control panel
  • SSL certificates
  • Additional IP addresses
  • Load balancing for two or more servers
  • Anti-virus protection for mail servers
  • Routine backup storage
  • Additional RAM
  • Additional hard drive
  • Windows Server 2008
  • KVM over IP
  • Additional badwidth/data transfer

For prices check your web host’s website.
