Definition of Dedicated Hosting

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers host plenty of clients and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the possibility to do everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-absorbing web site, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You have complete root access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting suppliers, including us at Web Hosting Dorks, offer several hardware architectures you can select from as per your demands. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not give you complete root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has many websites that swallow lots of system resources, but wishes to administer the online portals, databases and email mailbox accounts through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Web Hosting Dorks the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access deletes something accidentally.
