What In Fact is Dedicated Servers Web Hosting?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web servers host many customers and thus the system resources per user account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you like without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a resource-demanding online portal, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You have full server root access and can use 100% of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting companies, including us at Website Handyman, provide several hardware configurations you can select from depending on your requirements. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server web hosting via a Secure Shell client only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not include root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who runs many online portals that consume lots of resources, but would rather administer the sites, databases and e-mail box accounts via an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers only 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Website Handyman the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
