Definition of Dedicated Hosting
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host multiple clients and thus the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server accounts give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to do everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring online portal, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the most suitable choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are granted root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your online portals.
Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at Pepcube Web Hosting, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from based on your demands. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful GUI if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-assured Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to grant root-level access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not give you complete server root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who runs many online portals that consume plenty of resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and mail accounts via a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the web server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
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 case of a predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. 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 individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something by mistake.
