Past few years the price of the Dedicated server is going down, in fact, prices have dropped so much for the budget dedicated server market. While competitive conditions in both the hosting industry and the computer hardware industry have contributed to the reduction in dedicated hosting costs, don't think that prices were that inflated in the first place. Budget servers are fantastic, but it takes more than a competitive market to offer services at such high prices.
We should also look some features like before just lining up the amount of ram, the processor speed, the data transfer and the price. While there are plenty that do it, a 1 person effort to maintain a mission critical or high traffic server is no easy task. It helps to have others helping look out for your interests as well. Also the technical support matters a lot the level of support received with your dedicated services is important as well. Some dedicated hosts offer email only support in order to keep costs down while others flat out charge a fee for a support ticket. Your preferred method of receiving support plus the level and frequency in which you will need it should certainly be considered.
Through these scenario you can choose a reliable dedicated hosting.
