Description of Dedicated Hosting Plans

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major kinds – shared website hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host numerous clients and thus the resources per account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the option to do everything you like without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a content-heavy website, or simply has very special server architecture requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You have full server root access and can use 100 percent of the web server’s resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting distributors, incl. us at [rp_store_info key=’store_title’], offer several hardware architectures you can select from based on your demands. The hardware architectures include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you want to utilize the web hosting server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting CP software – Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant complete server root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not offer complete root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains plenty of web portals that absorb lots of system resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and email addresses through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and include 3 access levels – root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting server only 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at [rp_store_info key=’store_title’] the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra option – the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something accidentally.
