Description of Dedicated Server Hosting
When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host lots of customers and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you decide without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-demanding web page, or simply has very special web server setup requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You acquire root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
Most shared hosting vendors, incl. us at Net Hosting Company, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from in accordance with your needs. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you would like to use the hosting server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through SSH exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we provide does not offer full server root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains numerous websites that swallow lots of system resources, but would like to administer the sites, databases and emails through a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Net Hosting Company 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access erases something by accident.
