Dedicated Hosting Definition
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the chance to carry out everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-requiring web site, or simply has very explicit server configuration requirements, the most logical option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive root privileges and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your sites.
The majority of website hosting service providers, including us at iwebclouds Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from based on your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is convenient software if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we offer does not give you full server root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns numerous web portals that devour plenty of resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and e-mailboxes using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at iwebclouds Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something accidentally.
