What is Dedicated Hosting?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 basic varieties - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host lots of customers and hence the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-requiring site, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You have full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting providers, incl. us at PIXELSPECK, provide several hardware architectures you can select from in line with your requirements. The configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not include full server root access and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains lots of sites that devour a lot of system resources, but would rather administer the web sites, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at PIXELSPECK the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow 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 ranted root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
