What Exactly is Dedicated Servers Hosting?
When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 major categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of customers and therefore the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the option to perform everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited web portal, or simply has very exact web server configuration requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You are given full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web sites.
Most website hosting providers, incl. us at , offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we offer does not offer complete root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who maintains numerous websites that absorb lots of resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and email aliases through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges deletes something accidentally.
