Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Definition

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 major types - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host a lot of customers and therefore the resources per user account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the autonomy to carry out everything you desire without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content site, or simply has very special server architecture requirements, the most suitable choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not an issue. You acquire complete server root access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting corporations, including us at , provide different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated web hosting servers via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not include full root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who owns numerous web portals that swallow lots of system resources, but wants to administer the sites, databases and email box accounts through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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