What Does Dedicated Servers Hosting Stand for?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate many clients and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a large site, or simply has very explicit server setup requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are bestowed with root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting vendors, including us at Hosting PTC, provide several hardware configurations you can select from depending on your needs. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through SSH only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not offer full server root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs plenty of online portals that devour plenty of resources, but wishes to administer the web sites, databases and electronic mail aliases through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers only 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Hosting PTC 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 as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access deletes something by accident.
