If you’re just getting into choosing a dedicated server, meaning you’re a newbie in the game, then probably the best thing to do is to choose Windows dedicated servers to handle your business. This system is more user friendly to the inexperienced than say, a Linux system. Many experts recommend Linux in the long run, however in the short term, a Windows dedicated server is where you should begin.

Windows dedicated servers are good for individuals and small businesses with expanding needs on the web. For instance, it can handle many simultaneous remote logins to your server. The Windows dedicated server comes with a control panel that is competitively priced to enable you to manager your server. The latest versions of the Windows dedicated server also come with an active directory to make life easier.

It is always best to decide what you really need in your system first, before buying or spending money in a lease type situation. Next, decide how much money you need to spend to get up and running. Bear in mind that Windows dedicated servers are expensive. They are probably the Rolls Royce within the industry, at least in price, anyway. The third thing you want to do is to decide what are your long term goals. In other words, how do you plan to expand your system down the line.  Windows dedicated servers are good for creating application pools, hosting ASP applications, utilizing MS SQL Server, hosting Microsoft Exchange, as well as hosting Sharepoint, to name a few possibilities.

The Windows dedicated server hosting system is flexible in that it can be added on to  any managed or unmanaged dedicated server. Bear in mind that Windows is not cheap. If you find that you really cannot afford to jump into Windows dedicated servers in the beginning, you might consider looking at a Linux based system. Linux is free and makes for a cheaper system. However, Linux is not as user friendly as Windows, so it may be best to go ahead and put out the money for the more expensive, but infinitely more user friendly Windows dedicated servers.
