Dedicated Web Hosting

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three principal sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated web servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate multiple customers and therefore the resources per account are restricted, virtual private hosting servers offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a high resource-consuming web page, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are granted root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting providers, including ResellersPanel Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from based on your necessities. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated server for web site hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. ResellersPanel Hosting, for example, offers 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (the majority of servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that ResellersPanel Hosting provides does not offer full root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs numerous web pages that demand a lot of resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and mailbox aliases via a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the hosting server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. ResellersPanel Hosting monitors all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on their own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
