When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main types - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host numerous customers and thus the resources per user account are limited, VPS give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to do everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-absorbing web portal, or just has very special web server configuration requirements, the most suitable choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root access and can use 100% of the hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of web hosting vendors, including us at Hosting and Design for Us, provide several hardware configurations you can select from in accordance with your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is handy software if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to grant complete root access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we provide does not offer complete root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who runs lots of sites that demand lots of resources, but would rather manage the sites, databases and mailbox accounts via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Hosting and Design for Us 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 servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access deletes something by accident.
