How Dedicated Hosting Servers Function
When we speak of hosting servers, there are three main sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers host a lot of customers and thus the resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a content-heavy site, or just has very precise server architecture requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your sites.
Most web hosting service providers, incl. us at PIXELSPECK, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from as per your needs. The hardware architectures include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web 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 OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting via an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to grant root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not offer full root-level access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has plenty of websites that devour a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the web pages, databases and e-mailboxes using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at PIXELSPECK the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access deletes something unintentionally.
