Dedicated Servers

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers . Shared servers host plenty of clients and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private hosting servers offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting web servers offer you the freedom to perform everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated web servers are normally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-demanding web page, or simply has very specific server setup requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not an issue. You have full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting suppliers, incl. ResellersPanel Web Hosting , provide several different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your demands. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you want to utilize the dedicated web server for web site hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. ResellersPanel Web Hosting, for example, provides 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (the majority of servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your web hosting server via a Secure Shell connection only. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that ResellersPanel Web Hosting provides does not give you full root-level access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has lots of online portals that swallow lots of resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the hosting server only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting web server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. ResellersPanel Web Hosting monitors all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the web server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on their own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access deletes something by accident.
