What Actually is Dedicated Hosting?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate numerous customers and so the resources per account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited web site, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a concern. You receive root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting distributors, including us at ICT Gurus EA Best Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from as per your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who runs a lot of web pages that swallow plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and emails using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at ICT Gurus EA Best Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by accident.
