What Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Signify?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple customers and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans give you more configuration independence, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you choose without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a high resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very exact server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not an issue. You are given full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at Speedi Hosts, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from in keeping with your demands. The configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you would like to use the dedicated web server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you want to grant access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not offer complete root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs numerous web pages that devour plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the web pages, databases and email aliases through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the web server just 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 server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Speedi Hosts 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by accident.
