When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate a lot of clients and thus the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to do everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a data-heavy website, or just has very explicit web server setup requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting companies, including us at Cloud Service, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from as per your demands. The hardware architectures include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we offer does not include full root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who has many online portals that devour a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the online portals, databases and mail accounts using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Cloud Service 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something by mistake.
