What Does Dedicated Hosting Signify?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers accommodate many clients and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a high-traffic website, or simply has very special web server setup requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You obtain full root access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting firms, incl. us at PriceToHost, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from in accordance with your requirements. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you wish to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that we provide does not give you root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who runs lots of web sites that consume plenty of resources, but would rather administer the sites, databases and email accounts via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at PriceToHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something accidentally.
