Dedicated Hosting Services Explained

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers host lots of clients and therefore the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting give you more configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the freedom to perform everything you desire without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a resource-intensive web site, or just has very precise web server architecture requirements, the right choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You receive root access and can use 100% of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting firms, incl. us at Speedi Hosts, provide several hardware architectures you can select from depending on your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting via an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not include full root access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns numerous sites that swallow lots of resources, but would like to manage the sites, databases and electronic mail addresses through an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Speedi Hosts the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access deletes something by mistake.
