When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host plenty of clients and so the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private servers give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited website, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You receive full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting providers, incl. us at Hostiser, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you want to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not offer root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who has plenty of web sites that devour a lot of resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and e-mail aliases using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Hostiser the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by accident.
