Dedicated Hosting Services Description

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host many customers and therefore the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to carry out everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited online portal, or simply has very exact server architecture requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is not a problem. You get root access and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting firms, including us at WeboHost, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from on the basis of your demands. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to use the web hosting server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we provide does not offer full server root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who runs multiple websites that demand plenty of system resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and email accounts using a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

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 web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at WeboHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access deletes something by accident.
