How Does Dedicated Hosting Operate?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main categories - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host numerous clients and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to do everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-demanding web page, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the greater price is not a problem. You have complete root-level access and can use 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting providers, including us at Deploy Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your demands. The hardware configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a handy software tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we provide does not include full server root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who has many web sites that demand plenty of resources, but would rather manage the sites, databases and electronic mail aliases through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Deploy Hosting 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 hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something unintentionally.
