Definition of Dedicated Server Plans

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three major kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate numerous clients and hence the system resources per account are limited, virtual private servers offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a large web portal, or simply has very exact web server configuration requirements, the best option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not an issue. You acquire full root access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most hosting providers, incl. us at, offer several hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your demands. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via SSH exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to give full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we offer does not give you root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns numerous online portals that require plenty of resources, but desires to manage the web sites, databases and mailboxes via a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select 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 problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at 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 as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
