What Do Dedicated Servers Represent?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web hosting servers accommodate multiple customers and thus the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to do everything you please without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-demanding web portal, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You are given full root access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

Most web hosting firms, incl. us at WANTOK Web Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can pick from on the basis of your demands. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a useful graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not offer full root privileges and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains numerous websites that require plenty of resources, but would like to administer the sites, databases and email accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at WANTOK Web Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access deletes something by accident.
