What are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of clients and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?
Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-demanding online portal, or just has very explicit server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You acquire complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web portals.
Most shared web hosting suppliers, including us at , provide several different hardware architectures you can select from based on your demands. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient software tool if you wish to utilize the hosting server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your choice
If you are a confident Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer complete root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns a lot of websites that swallow lots of system resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and email addresses via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated hosting server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something by accident.
