Dedicated Servers Hosting Description

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate numerous clients and hence the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to perform everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-demanding site, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You have complete root-level access and can use 100% of the web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting companies, including us at WP WEB SPACE, provide different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your demands. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you wish to use the web hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to grant complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not offer complete server root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who maintains numerous web sites that absorb lots of resources, but desires to manage the web sites, databases and mails via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than using the web server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at WP WEB SPACE 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 server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something by accident.
