When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main kinds - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate many customers and so the system resources per account are limited, virtual private server plans give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the independence to perform everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited online portal, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the best option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You have full server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most shared web hosting corporations, including us at DNA SuperHost, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your demands. The hardware architectures include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is convenient software if you wish to utilize the dedicated server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via an SSH terminal only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to give access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not include full root-level access and is mostly suitable for somebody who owns multiple sites that demand lots of system resources, but prefers to manage the online portals, databases and email accounts using an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at DNA SuperHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges deletes something accidentally.
