Dedicated Servers Description

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host numerous customers and thus the resources per account are limited, virtual private servers offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to do everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a resource-intensive web portal, or simply has very specific web server setup requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You are granted root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at , provide different hardware configurations you can pick from in line with your demands. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not give you full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs many web sites that demand plenty of system resources, but would rather manage the web pages, databases and email addresses using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind 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 individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something unintentionally.
