What Does Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Represent?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic categories - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate a lot of clients and so the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you like without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated web hosting servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-absorbing web site, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive complete root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting corporations, including us at Bald Guy Hosting, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from on the basis of your needs. The hardware architectures offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting servers through an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to give full root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who runs numerous web sites that absorb a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the web portals, databases and electronic mail aliases through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Bald Guy Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something by mistake.
