Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Definition

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate lots of customers and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to do everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a popular site, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You obtain root privileges and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared web hosting service providers, including us at DDD Web Services, provide different hardware configurations you can select from on the basis of your requirements. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you would like to use the server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not offer complete root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns numerous sites that swallow plenty of system resources, but would rather administer the sites, databases and mail addresses through an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting web server only 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 web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at DDD Web Services the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access deletes something by accident.
