When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic categories - shared website hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host plenty of customers and so the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to do everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing web portal, or just has very explicit web server setup requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You gain root access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting distributors, incl. us at PIXELSPECK, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from based on your needs. The configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains many websites that consume plenty of resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and mail accounts via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the web hosting server just 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 predicament with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at PIXELSPECK the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access deletes something by mistake.
