Dedicated Web Hosting Description
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 basic varieties - website hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting servers host numerous clients and so the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other VPSs on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the liberty to perform everything you wish without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?
Dedicated web hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a high-traffic site, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You get full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web pages.
The majority of website hosting distributors, incl. us at TronINDEX.com, offer different hardware configurations you can select from depending on your demands. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting via SSH only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia Control Panel interface that we provide does not include full server root access and is mainly suitable for someone who maintains lots of websites that absorb a lot of system resources, but wants to administer the web portals, databases and electronic mail aliases via a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.
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 predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at TronINDEX.com the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access deletes something by mistake.
