How Dedicated Servers Hosting Operates

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host multiple clients and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a resource-swallowing web site, or just has very exact server configuration requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are bestowed with full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specifications

Most web hosting suppliers, including us at Christian Web Hosting, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from in accordance with your demands. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful graphical user interface if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH console only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to give complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not offer root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains multiple websites that require lots of system resources, but desires to manage the web portals, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Christian Web Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access deletes something accidentally.
