What Precisely is Dedicated Hosting?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three major kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers accommodate many clients and hence the resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you want without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a resource-devouring online portal, or simply has very special web server configuration requirements, the most reasonable choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You are given full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most website hosting providers, incl. us at Ashore Hosting, offer several hardware architectures you can select from depending on your requirements. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a convenient interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via an SSH connection exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give full root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we provide does not give you full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains numerous sites that demand lots of resources, but prefers to manage the web portals, databases and e-mails through a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Ashore Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something accidentally.
