What Exactly is Dedicated Web Hosting?

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web hosting servers host multiple customers and so the system resources per account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to carry out everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a big website, or just has very special server configuration requirements, the best option is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not an issue. You gain complete root-level access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your sites.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting distributors, including us at IDEA MD Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is useful software if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we offer does not offer complete server root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns many web sites that require lots of resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and electronic mail addresses through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at IDEA MD 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 as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
