When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate multiple clients and so the resources per user account are restricted, VPS accounts give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to do everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a high-traffic web page, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the best option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You acquire full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting corporations, incl. us at ICT Gurus EA Best Hosting, provide several hardware architectures you can select from depending on your necessities. The configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you wish to use the hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH client only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you want to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we provide does not include complete root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs numerous web sites that consume plenty of resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at ICT Gurus EA Best Hosting 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 too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access erases something accidentally.
