What Precisely are Dedicated Hosting Servers?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate many customers and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing site, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most logical option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a problem. You have complete root access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting vendors, including us at Hostnet GH. Ltd, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from in line with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy software tool if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we provide does not include full root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who owns numerous online portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but wants to manage the web portals, databases and emails through an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Hostnet GH. Ltd 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 an additional option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges erases something unintentionally.
