Dedicated Hosting Uncovered

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host a lot of customers and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the freedom to do everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-devouring site, or simply has very special web server setup requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are granted complete root-level access and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting vendors, incl. us at Domains Depot, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting through SSH exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not include full server root privileges and is mainly appropriate for someone who maintains numerous web pages that consume lots of system resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and electronic mails using an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Domains Depot the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access erases something accidentally.
