Dedicated Hosting Clarified

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host plenty of clients and thus the system resources per account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to do everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a resource-intensive web site, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most logical option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is not a concern. You get full root access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting companies, including us at Innovative Hosting Services Limited, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from depending on your requirements. The configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH connection exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not include full server root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains multiple websites that devour lots of resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and mail aliases via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Innovative Hosting Services Limited the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something by mistake.
