Dedicated Hosting Unveiled
When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host multiple clients and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS plans give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to carry out everything you please without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated server?
Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-absorbing online portal, or just has very exact server configuration requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You have full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your online portals.
The majority of hosting companies, incl. us at sknhosting, provide several hardware architectures you can select from based on your requirements. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you want to use the hosting server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH console 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 choice
If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant complete server root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we provide does not include full root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns multiple websites that consume a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the web portals, databases and e-mailboxes via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at sknhosting 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 server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something by accident.
