Dedicated Hosting Revealed

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers host lots of clients and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to do everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a big site, or simply has very special web server setup requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not an issue. You acquire root-level access and can use 100 percent of the physical server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting service providers, incl. us at Webyx Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from as per your needs. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient GUI if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs numerous web portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but would rather manage the sites, databases and email mailboxes through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Webyx Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something by mistake.
