How Much Will a Server Cost?
Adding a dedicated server to your business is no simple matter. The hardware, software and administration costs can quickly get out of hand if you don't have a solid plan in place and a budget that accurately accounts for each of these areas. This is one reason many businesses that can't get past the initial "sticker shock" of a dedicated server look at virtual servers as an alternative.
Virtual servers are servers that are hosted online and managed by a hosting company. The ongoing costs associated with hosted servers are not exactly inexpensive either, but that's a topic for another time.
Congratulations! You now understand how much a server costs and what’s involved in budgeting for a new server.
