Let’s have a discussion around your real-world experiences using dedicated servers – what specific features do you find most useful in practice? Do advanced server management dashboards save you substantial time compared to basic hosting admin? How impactful are optimized server stacks (LAMP, LEMP, etc.) – do they provide a significant app speed boost based on your testing?
And most importantly – are there any bells & whistles that you discovered you didn’t really need despite sounding good on paper originally? What turned out to be lower priority capabilities once you started using your dedicated server more?
Keen to hear your insights based on first-hand experience provisioning and utilizing dedicated servers. Feel free to get technical in your responses! Let’s shed some light on what buyers should truly focus on, vs what they can likely skip.
