Dedicated Hosting Services Uncovered
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a resource-demanding website, or simply has very special server setup requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You have full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web pages.
Most web hosting vendors, including us at WebMediaHosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from as per your demands. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant full root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not offer root privileges and is mostly suitable for somebody who has multiple online portals that swallow lots of resources, but would rather administer the online portals, databases and email boxes via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than using the server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at WebMediaHosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something accidentally.
