Dedicated Hosting Servers Uncovered
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers host a lot of clients and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the liberty to carry out everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-consuming online portal, or simply has very precise server setup requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You receive root privileges and can utilize 100% of the hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your sites.
The majority of web hosting firms, incl. us at LUFDY, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from in line with your needs. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you wish to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you want to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not give you full root-level access and is mainly suitable for somebody who has a lot of web pages that demand plenty of resources, but wishes to manage the web sites, databases and e-mail box accounts using a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick 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 hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at LUFDY the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access erases something accidentally.
