Explanation of Dedicated Server Web Hosting
When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate many clients and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the freedom to perform everything you decide without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?
Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a large website, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not a problem. You receive full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your online portals.
The majority of web hosting vendors, incl. us at DNA SuperHost, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from in keeping with your needs. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting via an SSH client only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who has multiple web sites that devour lots of system resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and email accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at DNA SuperHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access deletes something unintentionally.
