What is Dedicated Hosting?
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 major kinds - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of customers and thus the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS offer more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a intense-traffic web site, or just has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You obtain full server root access and can utilize 100% of the server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your web portals.
Most web hosting providers, incl. us at , provide several hardware configurations you can pick from as per your demands. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a handy software tool if you would like to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not include complete server root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who runs numerous web sites that absorb lots of system resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and mails through an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. 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 servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something by mistake.
