When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host multiple customers and hence the resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration freedom, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-requiring website, or simply has very precise server configuration requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root-level access and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware specs

Most shared hosting corporations, including us at Hepsia, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in keeping with your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you want to use the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we offer does not offer complete root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who has multiple web sites that consume plenty of system resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and e-mail accounts through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Hepsia the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access deletes something by mistake.
