Dedicated Web Hosting Defined

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three main categories - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate lots of clients and thus the system resources per account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the autonomy to do everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.

Dedicated web hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a resource-absorbing site, or simply has very precise server setup requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You are granted full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of web hosting firms, including us at The Hosting Dudes, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from according to your needs. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated web hosting servers via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not include full server root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who has many websites that demand plenty of system resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and mail addresses through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at The Hosting Dudes the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access erases something by mistake.
