When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three main kinds - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host many customers and therefore the resources per account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you desire without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no importance. You get full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting corporations, including us at InsiderHosting, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from based on your needs. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you want to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we provide does not offer full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who has multiple web pages that swallow lots of resources, but wants to manage the web pages, databases and email mailboxes through an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at InsiderHosting 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 too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 hard drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by accident.
