Things to take care while setting up own Personal server
- Checking a server license and its cost.
- Checking preventive measures for Virus, bugs and Spam attacks.
- All 24 hours functionality and maintenance.
For a website its necessary to be operational all 24 hours if it is a case of business website with good web hosting, in that case its necessary that the server must have 24 hour up-time with necessary support. The main feature that Internet Service Providers have is availability of professional maintenance crew working for all 24/7 environments for ensuring smooth functioning of websites. The common tendency of customers is that setting up of server hosting is economic than getting a web hosting package.
However it is just a wrong impression it is so because for a normal individual buying hosting equipment is very expensive and secondly like other computer peripherals it gets updated after sometime. As against this server companies spend lakhs of rupees on purchase as well as up gradation of equipments. The advantage that they get is of wholesale quantity with good price hence they provide packages, which are quite competitive and economic.So the best advise would be to rely on these packages instead of relying on personal computers.
