So, what are dedicated servers?
First things first, toegewijd (dedicated) servers are those private or semi private servers that you need for your online business. This kind of Webhosting is popular among business because most importantly, since this is a private network, the number of users is limited and so, the bandwidth is not compromised as opposed to the public servers that could frustrate you in no time at all. There is no kind of sharing in this network, either physical or by employing baremetal dedicated server technology (virtual method).

What to expect?
Where are these dedicated servers located?
Dedicated servers are located in the data centers that are specifically constructed to house your server, along with others’ servers. In other words, this is a kind of office that stores private servers. These people are well aware what your requirements are and the level of consistency in service you require with this service since you need this for your business that is very important to you. It is often seen that this service is quite expensive, but it is understandable, given the quality of hardware they use so that your server is protected against any breakdown in a fool proof method. Maintainence of these hardware is not cheap either, so that brings up the cost further. Since the client is paying more, he can expect an impeccable consistency on the part of the server, because a single fault in it would mean monetary loss for him.
For example you are running a sale on your e-commerce site and the visits to your website is quite high. This is the time when you will need the server to work properly. But if the hardware somehow breaks down, it would mean total chaos. Your customers would get confused, you would naturally incur a loss, and the worst, your reputation would get sullied. So, the two things you must be dead sure about—the consistency of the server, and of course on the fact whether you can rely on them or not.
Why data centers from Netherlands?
Datacenters are those large, specious rooms that house your server. Since your server is private, it is voluminous and thus a lot of space is required to store it. Since it is an electronic device, therefore one cannot avoid the most basic problem, that is overheating. You must make sure that the service provider has a spacious hall that is air conditioned to cool down the servers which generate a lot of heat and can break down because of the very reason.
There should be a suitable exhausting system that would let the heat out, that would further keep the temperature down. If the system gets too heated up, the initial symptom is the slowing down of network, which if unattended to, might lead to complete breakdown. Also, it might lead to the complete wreckage of hardware which would be nothing short of a calamity. You cannot afford that because of the reasons discussed earlier, hence you must be careful about this and choose the service provider that offers this facility.
Further, the data centers should have a stable power source that does not fluctuate. Your service provider should be able to provie you with the assurance that the power source would be uniform, because you will be in constant need of power, since that is the requisite of a bandwidth dedicated server. Power fluctuation would lead to a lot of problems with the server slowing down. The customers might face problems while adding things to there cart, or worse, getting held up during the payment procedure in the payment gateway. The customer would get confused and there would be utter confusion all around, and this could make your site seriously unpopular in future if this continues to bother the consumers.
It is understandable that the service provider can not fully guarantee the power supply, but he must take measures in order to save you from trouble. The service provider should be ready for higher power demands during which the electricity board might decide to scrap its services for a while. What then? The service provider should have an inverter ready, or may be other forms of sustainable resources such as solar power that would provide your server the power needed and thus save you from the loss of money and reputation that you would have incurred.
Even in this case, power consumption would be quite high, resulting in high temperature. High temperature would cause high humidity and this would again needed to be cooled off, keeping in mind that the air conditioners too have to be used with care since the inverter might not be able to bear the huge workload. The moisture formed due to this humidity has to be kept under check too, as this can cause technical problems.
