When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host plenty of clients and therefore the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server plans give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You have full root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting providers, including us at Pepcube Web Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from in consonance with your requirements. The configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy graphical user interface if you wish to utilize the web hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

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 server through SSH only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to grant full server root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not give you full root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who runs multiple websites that require lots of system resources, but would like to manage the websites, databases and e-mailbox accounts via an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Pepcube Web Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something unintentionally.
