How Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Work?
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host numerous clients and so the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing site, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are given root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your websites.
Most hosting providers, incl. us at ZrainMedia Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from based on your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to grant root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel user interface that we offer does not give you complete root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who maintains multiple web pages that absorb a lot of resources, but would like to administer the websites, databases and emails through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just 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 the event of a problem with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at ZrainMedia Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something by mistake.
