What Actually is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host lots of clients and therefore the resources per account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you wish without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a resource-requiring online portal, or simply has very special web server architecture requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You obtain complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of web hosting firms, including us at Su Host, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from in keeping with your demands. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is convenient software if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via SSH only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you full root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who runs many websites that devour plenty of system resources, but desires to manage the websites, databases and mail aliases through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web 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 case of a predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Su Host 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 feature - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something unintentionally.
