Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Description
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of customers and so the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?
Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-requiring web site, or simply has very precise server architecture requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are granted full root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your web sites.
Most website hosting providers, incl. us at , offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your demands. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not offer complete root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who maintains many web pages that demand a lot of resources, but would like to administer the websites, databases and email accounts using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful 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 web hosting server too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something by accident.
