Description of Dedicated Hosting
When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers host lots of clients and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the independence to perform everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a regularly visited web page, or just has very specific server configuration requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a problem. You receive full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your web pages.
The majority of website hosting companies, incl. us at , provide different hardware architectures you can select from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of web hosting CP 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 running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to give full root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not offer complete root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who runs plenty of sites that require lots of resources, but desires to administer the online portals, databases and electronic mail accounts via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something accidentally.
