What Exactly are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - website hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared servers accommodate numerous clients and so the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the option to carry out everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a heavy-content web portal, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You get root-level access and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting vendors, including us at AEY WEB HOSTING, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from in line with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you wish to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not include complete server root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns numerous web pages that consume a lot of resources, but desires to administer the web pages, databases and email boxes using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root-level access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web 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 case of a problem with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at AEY WEB HOSTING the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two hard disks as a precaution in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something unintentionally.
