Dedicated Web Hosting Explained
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host numerous clients and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to do everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated server?
Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-consuming online portal, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive complete root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web portals.
Most web hosting vendors, including us at AN1 Technology Group, offer several hardware architectures you can select from depending on your requirements. The configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is convenient software if you would like to utilize the web hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your choice
If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell connection only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to grant full root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we provide does not include root-level access and is mostly suitable for somebody who has multiple web portals that demand plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the web pages, databases and electronic mail accounts through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the web hosting server 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at AN1 Technology Group the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something accidentally.
