Explanation of Dedicated Server Web Hosting
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of clients and so the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the possibility to do everything you think fit without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?
Dedicated web hosting servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-swallowing web site, or simply has very explicit server setup requirements, the most reasonable choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You are given complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your sites.
Most website hosting vendors, including us at PAYHOSTING.NET, offer different hardware architectures you can select from depending on your demands. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting through a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you choose to grant complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not give you complete server root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who owns lots of web pages that devour lots of system resources, but wants to administer the sites, databases and email boxes using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at PAYHOSTING.NET the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access erases something unintentionally.
