Dedicated Web Hosting Disclosed

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major categories - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of customers and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to do everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a content-heavy site, or simply has very specific web server architecture requirements, the right choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You obtain full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting vendors, including us at webgeardefault, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your demands. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of hosting 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 dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH terminal only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you want to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not include root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns a lot of sites that consume plenty of system resources, but desires to administer the online portals, databases and e-mailbox accounts using an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at webgeardefault 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 servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something by mistake.
