When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate many customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-swallowing web site, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the most relevant option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You receive root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting corporations, including us at Su Host, provide different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your demands. The configurations include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to 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 hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia Control Panel interface that we provide does not include full server root access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns plenty of websites that swallow lots of resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and e-mail aliases via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

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 an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Su Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access deletes something unintentionally.
