Dedicated Server Web Hosting Disclosed
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 basic kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate multiple customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more configuration independence, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?
Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a high resource-swallowing web portal, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the most logical option is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are bestowed with complete root access and can use 100% of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your websites.
Most web hosting providers, including us at Webgear Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can pick from on the basis of your requirements. The configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server web hosting through an SSH client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you root privileges and is mostly suitable for somebody who runs numerous web portals that swallow lots of resources, but would like to manage the web sites, databases and email accounts through an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup procedures
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 hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Webgear Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
