How Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Works

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate many customers and so the resources per user account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the chance to do everything you want without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a content-heavy web site, or just has very precise server architecture requirements, the most suitable choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You have complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting companies, incl. us at Eagleprohost.com, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your necessities. The hardware architectures include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting through a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains a lot of web portals that consume lots of resources, but wishes to manage the web sites, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

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 a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Eagleprohost.com 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 an extra option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access deletes something by accident.
