What Precisely is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate numerous clients and thus the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a intense-traffic website, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You are bestowed with complete server root access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting vendors, including us at Su Host, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from on the basis of your needs. The hardware architectures offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you want to utilize the server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not give you root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns numerous web portals that swallow a lot of resources, but desires to manage the sites, databases and e-mail aliases via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server 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 useful to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Su Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something unintentionally.
