Dedicated Hosting Servers Revealed
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of clients and so the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to do everything you like without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring web page, or simply has very special web server architecture requirements, the best choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You acquire full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web portals.
The majority of web hosting suppliers, incl. us at Big M WebHosting Co., provide several different hardware configurations you can select from based on your requirements. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you want to utilize the server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not give you root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who owns lots of web portals that consume lots of resources, but prefers to administer the websites, databases and mails via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the web hosting server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Big M WebHosting Co. 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 too. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something accidentally.
