Dedicated Hosting Explanation

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate multiple clients and so the system resources per account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the option to perform everything you wish without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a high resource-devouring site, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You obtain complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting distributors, including us at Best Hosting Services for New Websites, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware architectures include different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is useful software if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant full root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not include root-level access and is mainly suitable for somebody who runs multiple sites that absorb a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the web pages, databases and e-mail addresses through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Best Hosting Services for New Websites the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something accidentally.
