When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web servers host lots of customers and so the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server plans give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a resource-intensive web page, or simply has very special web server architecture requirements, the most logical option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You acquire complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting providers, incl. us at Website Web Hosting Services, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from in line with your needs. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful software tool if you wish to utilize the server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not include full root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who maintains lots of sites that consume plenty of resources, but wants to manage the web portals, databases and email mailboxes using an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Website Web Hosting Services the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something by accident.
