When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate numerous clients and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you think fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a resource-devouring web page, or just has very exact server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You have full server root access and can use 100% of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at Hitpresence Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can select from based on your demands. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you would like to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel 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 Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to give complete root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not include full root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who has multiple web portals that demand a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the web sites, databases and e-mail box accounts via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Hitpresence Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something accidentally.
