When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 major types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared servers host numerous clients and thus the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your corporation has a resource-devouring site, or simply has very explicit web server setup requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You get full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting service providers, incl. us at, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you want to use the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not offer complete root access and is mainly suitable for someone who has lots of web portals that demand a lot of system resources, but wants to administer the online portals, databases and e-mail box accounts via an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server solely 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 web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
