Dedicated Servers Description
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three major varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host many clients and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private servers give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a large-scale website, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the smartest choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You are granted complete server root access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your sites.
The majority of website hosting vendors, incl. us at HarryHost, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from according to your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who runs plenty of web sites that demand lots of resources, but wishes to manage the web pages, databases and e-mail box accounts via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at HarryHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
