Renting a server, you should consider
Term of contract
number of slots on server
support of voice comms such as ventrilo or teamspeak
recording client such has HLTV for counterstrike
FTP access to your server
Customer support for when things go wrong
Use of admin mods, though I think these kill the server too much
If you're also running a game specific server, make sure you have all the variable commands at hand, so you can admin your server.
