What Do Dedicated Servers Denote?
When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main types – hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of clients and therefore the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a large web page, or just has very exact web server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You are granted full server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and interfering with your websites.
Most hosting providers, incl. us at , offer different hardware architectures you can select from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware architectures include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is handy software if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant full server root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not include full server root access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns many websites that absorb a lot of resources, but wishes to manage the web pages, databases and mail addresses via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and have three levels of access – root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select 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 case of a problem with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option – the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something accidentally.
