Dedicated Hosting

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal types - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web servers. Shared web hosting servers host numerous clients and hence the resources per account are limited, VPS servers give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting web servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you like without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a frequently visited web site, or just has very exact server setup requirements, the most logical option is a dedicated hosting server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You acquire root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting companies, including ResellersPanel.com, offer different hardware architectures you can select from in accordance with your needs. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you wish to use the web server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. ResellersPanel.com, for instance, offers 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (most dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting server via SSH only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that ResellersPanel.com offers does not offer full server root privileges and is mostly suitable for somebody who owns lots of web sites that require a lot of system resources, but wants to administer the web portals, databases and e-mail addresses using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of using the web hosting server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting web server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. ResellersPanel.com monitors all web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on their own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access erases something accidentally.
