Dedicated Hosting Unveiled

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers accommodate multiple customers and therefore the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-absorbing website, or simply has very specific web server setup requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You gain full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting firms, including us at Linux Hosts Inc., offer several hardware architectures you can choose from in line with your requirements. The hardware configurations include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you wish to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not include complete server root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns numerous web portals that require a lot of system resources, but prefers to manage the web portals, databases and e-mail boxes through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Linux Hosts Inc. the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something by mistake.
