You know, there are many high performed dedicated servers need for creating a file sharing website. For a file-sharing site, need a lot of bandwidth for the upload/download.

After uploading, users share the generated link to others users/visitors for downloading the uploaded files. So, disk space and bandwidth are very important.

When dedicated servers are needed?

The cost of the dedicated server is too high. Before purchasing a dedicated server you should know your website. So first know your website.

  1. If you have a static website which update once a month or a year, then you’ve no need any dedicated server. You may use shared hosting. (But, if you get high traffic every day to your static website, the upgrade to a small Virtual Dedicated Server (VPS).
  2. If your website is an informatics website or your website is a type of blog, then you’ve no need to buy any dedicated server. For informatics websites and blogs you should use
  3. If you’ve any dynamic website which is created using CMS (e.g. WordPress, Joomla), then I always recommend you for using CMS optimized cloud server with SSD.
  4. If you have a shopping site, then you should use eCommerce optimized cloud hosting with SSD from the beginning.
  5. If you have a file sharing site, then dedicated servers are highly recommended by me. Host your main site to a cloud server and use dedicated servers for storing users’ uploaded files.

What things you should focus on a dedicated server?

  1. Processor [CPU]: Choose high-performance Intel-powered processor.
  2. RAM: Try to choose the highest amount of RAM.
  3. Storage: Choose different RAID if hosting company provides more than one disk (Note: SSD storage is always better than HDD). Ask the provider that they will add more disk or not if required.
  4. Bandwidth: (Unlimited or not)
  5. Connection [Inbound & Outbound Connection Speed (Bandwidth)]: Maximum Hosting company provide 1-Gbit/s port speed – the download and upload speed depends on post speed. 10Gbits network speed is recommended for file sharing sites.
  6. Server Location: Try to choose the nearest location. If you get maximum traffic from India, then you should choose an Indian server.
  7. Accessibility: Ask the provider that they provide the ROOT access or not. If they would not give the permission, then you will not be able to customize the server.
  8. IP Address: Check how many IP addresses they are providing. (Try to use load balancing IP to reduce the load on your server).
  9. Backup: Server backup is very important. Ask them that they are providing the backup facility or not.
  10. Uptime: Check that the company is giving 99.9% to 100% server uptime guarantee or not.
  11. CDN: It is optional. But, some companies provide the content delivery network. CDN will give your server an extra speed. Content will be downloaded and uploaded to the nearest server.
  12. Support: Support is very important for every hosting. Don’t buy any server from those who don’t provide support by phone or email or chat.
