When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal types - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate plenty of clients and so the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the liberty to perform everything you desire without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content web site, or simply has very precise server configuration requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the greater price is not an issue. You receive full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting suppliers, including us at World Reseller Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your demands. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting via SSH only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to grant full server root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we provide does not give you full root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains multiple websites that consume plenty of system resources, but desires to administer the online portals, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers just 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 servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at World Reseller Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by accident.
