How Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Operate

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared servers host plenty of customers and so the resources per account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to carry out everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a frequently visited web portal, or just has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are bestowed with root access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting corporations, including us at World Reseller Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from in accordance with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated 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, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give complete root-level access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a great idea. The Hepsia Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include complete root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who has lots of sites that devour lots of system resources, but desires to administer the websites, databases and mail aliases through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at World Reseller Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by mistake.
