Dedicated Hosting Servers Description

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate lots of customers and so the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the autonomy to do everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing web portal, or just has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You receive full server root access and can use 100% of the server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting corporations, incl. us at ByoHosting, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your requirements. The hardware architectures include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is convenient software if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers through a Secure Shell client only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to give access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include complete server root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of web sites that absorb a lot of system resources, but would rather administer the sites, databases and mail addresses through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at ByoHosting 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 as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access erases something unintentionally.
