Dedicated Hosting Uncovered

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three basic types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host plenty of customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you like without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a resource-intensive web page, or simply has very specific server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the greater price is not an issue. You gain full root access and can use 100 percent of the web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specs

The majority of hosting vendors, including us at Solution Plus de Proyco Corporacion, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your demands. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you wish to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP user interface that we offer does not offer full root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has plenty of websites that devour plenty of system resources, but would like to administer the web sites, databases and e-mails via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Solution Plus de Proyco Corporacion the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something by mistake.
