What Do Dedicated Servers Denote?

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host many customers and hence the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you think fit without meddling with anyone else.

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a resource-swallowing site, or just has very precise web server setup requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive full server root privileges and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting firms, including us at, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from on the basis of your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH client exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to grant full server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not offer root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who owns lots of websites that absorb a lot of resources, but desires to manage the web portals, databases and e-mail accounts using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort 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 separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something accidentally.
