1) Change the Password
When you get access to a new dedicated server, the most crucial step is to change the password. The default password is given by the hosting company to increase the chances of a cyber-attack. A combination of symbols, numbers, upper and lowercase letters will create a strong password for your server.
2) Remove malware
Dedicated servers possess the risk of malware attacks, as any application can be installed on it. Malware comes preinstalled in some applications that target your server and steal any confidential information. Find the hosting provider, which does a regular vulnerability scanning, would be a bonus. Otherwise, you can do it on your own on the cheap dedicated server.
3) DDOS attack
DDOS attack will lead to a server failure when a grey hat hacker, along with some malicious computers, puts a burden on-site with a large amount of traffic. The server fails to handle it, resulting in the wastage of resources. DoS protection will act as a durable security layer to prevent attacks on the server.
4) Enable HTTP/2
HTTP/2 provides plenty of benefits to a dedicated server user. Most of the web servers are applying HTTP protocol v1.1 as default, but they support HTTP v2 too. It is the most recent development that improves server response time.
5) Defragmenting database table
When you delete a particular data from your site but do you know that it leaves a gap in the database table? It is known as fragmentation that can lead to longer data fetching time. Check your database table every month and make sure to run an optimization query.
6) Optimize setting
Optimizing the data server setting is essential if you are upgrading web applications or adding a new module or plugin. It is because the executed queries get modified with the change in them. Also, the increase in traffic on your site will raise the number of queries executed-some of the settings that you need to modify include max_connections, innodb_buffer_pool_size, and so on.
7) DNS query speed
The best kind of site has a DNS speed of 30 milliseconds or less than that. However, the distance between the browser and DNS server increase, it impacts DNS query speed. By using a distributed DNS cluster, you can effortlessly handle this issue.
