What In Fact is Dedicated Hosting?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate multiple clients and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS packages offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to carry out everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a high resource-demanding website, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You get root access and can use 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting companies, incl. us at Cloud Host Shop, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from according to your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you wish to use the dedicated server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not include root-level access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who has many websites that require a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the web pages, databases and mail addresses using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server just 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Cloud Host Shop 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 server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges erases something by accident.
