How Does Dedicated Web Hosting Function?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three principal varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate numerous customers and therefore the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server plans give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a high-traffic web site, or just has very exact web server configuration requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive full root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting vendors, including us at MyTrustyWebhost, offer different hardware configurations you can pick from as per your requirements. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you want to utilize the dedicated server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to grant complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we provide does not include full root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who has multiple websites that require a lot of system resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and electronic mails through a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than using the server only 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 web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at MyTrustyWebhost 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 web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something by mistake.
