What Do Dedicated Servers Signify?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host lots of customers and thus the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to carry out everything you see fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited site, or simply has very specific server architecture requirements, the right choice is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You obtain complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting corporations, incl. us at Sulana Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can select from based on your demands. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient GUI if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not include root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who owns lots of web pages that demand plenty of resources, but would rather administer the sites, databases and mailbox accounts via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Sulana Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges deletes something by mistake.
