Dedicated Hosting Description

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host many customers and hence the resources per account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to perform everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing web portal, or just has very specific server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain complete server root access and can use 100% of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting vendors, incl. us at , offer several hardware architectures you can choose from according to your demands. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the web hosting server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell connection only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you want to grant complete root-level access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we provide does not give you complete root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has numerous sites that consume lots of system resources, but wishes to administer the web pages, databases and email addresses via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges erases something by mistake.
