What Indeed is Dedicated Web Hosting?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three major sorts - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate numerous clients and so the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more configuration independence, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the independence to perform everything you like without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a heavy-content web site, or simply has very precise server setup requirements, the most suitable choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain complete root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting vendors, incl. us at WebSite Web Hosting Services International, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your needs. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not include root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns a lot of web sites that absorb a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the sites, databases and e-mail boxes via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at WebSite Web Hosting Services International the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very 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 given full root-level access deletes something by mistake.
