When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major categories - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple customers and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to do everything you please without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a busy website, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a concern. You obtain complete root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting service providers, including us at Web Got Consulting, provide several different hardware architectures you can pick from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not include full server root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who owns numerous sites that absorb plenty of system resources, but would rather manage the web pages, databases and email box accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

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 problem with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Web Got Consulting 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 option - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something by mistake.
