When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three main varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate numerous clients and hence the system resources per user account are limited, virtual private server plans give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the independence to perform everything you see fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-devouring website, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a concern. You acquire root privileges and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of website hosting corporations, incl. us at WebDevHosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from according to your necessities. The configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you wish to use the dedicated server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel GUI that we provide does not include root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains numerous sites that consume a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the online portals, databases and email mailbox accounts via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at WebDevHosting 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 web hosting server too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
