Dedicated Server

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting web servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate plenty of customers and so the system resources per user account are limited, VPSs offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting web servers give you the freedom to do everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a content-heavy web page, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the most logical option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are granted root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting distributors, incl. ResellersPanel Hosting, provide different hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your requirements. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. ResellersPanel Hosting, for instance, offers 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (most hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that ResellersPanel Hosting provides does not include full root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains multiple online portals that devour plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail boxes using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated web hosting server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting web server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. ResellersPanel Hosting monitors all dedicated web hosting 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 a bonus option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on their own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two server hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
