Dedicated Services Description
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 principal varieties – hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate multiple customers and therefore the system resources per account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a intense-traffic online portal, or just has very explicit web server setup requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not an issue. You are given root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your online portals.
The majority of website hosting firms, incl. us at , provide several hardware architectures you can pick from based on your necessities. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting Control Panel software – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell console only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not give you complete server root access and is mostly suitable for someone who has plenty of web sites that require plenty of resources, but desires to manage the web sites, databases and mailbox accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and have three levels of access – root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
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 hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional option – the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
