When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 basic sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers accommodate lots of customers and therefore the resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the chance to do everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a resource-absorbing web site, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the most suitable choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You receive full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting providers, incl. us at Value Hosting, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from in accordance with your necessities. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is convenient software if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through an SSH terminal only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who owns multiple websites that absorb lots of system resources, but would rather administer the online portals, databases and electronic mail aliases using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Value Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something by mistake.
