When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three major categories - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared servers host plenty of clients and so the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to do everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a busy website, or simply has very specific server setup requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You get full root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting corporations, incl. us at WEB Hosting Company, offer several different hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your demands. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the web server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not offer full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who owns numerous web pages that absorb a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the web pages, databases and e-mails through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than using the web hosting server just 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at WEB Hosting Company the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server disk 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 access deletes something unintentionally.
