What Do Dedicated Servers Mean?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate numerous clients and therefore the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to do everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring web site, or simply has very exact web server setup requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You acquire full server root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting corporations, incl. us at, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from according to your needs. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell connection only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant complete server root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we offer does not give you root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains a lot of web portals that swallow a lot of system resources, but wants to administer the web portals, databases and electronic mails through an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend 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 predicament with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something by accident.
