When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of clients and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the possibility to do everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your firm has a heavy-traffic web site, or just has very precise web server setup requirements, the most logical option is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You acquire full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting companies, incl. us at ZrainMedia Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia Control Panel interface that we provide does not offer root privileges and is mostly suitable for somebody who maintains plenty of online portals that consume a lot of resources, but wishes to administer the online portals, databases and email box accounts through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at ZrainMedia Hosting 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 web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something by mistake.
