When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate multiple customers and therefore the resources per account are limited, virtual private servers give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-consuming website, or just has very explicit server architecture requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is of no concern. You obtain full root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your sites.

Hardware specs

Most hosting firms, including us at WebPage 4 All, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from in keeping with your necessities. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through SSH only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not include full root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has a lot of web pages that devour plenty of resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and mailbox aliases through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at WebPage 4 All 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 servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access deletes something unintentionally.
