Dedicated Hosting Servers Definition

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate many customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to do everything you think fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing web portal, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You gain full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting firms, incl. us at AMERICANRESELLERS, offer several different hardware configurations you can choose from in keeping with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH connection only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we offer does not include root-level access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who maintains lots of sites that require lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and email accounts using an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the hosting server 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at AMERICANRESELLERS 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access erases something by mistake.
