Definition of Dedicated Packages

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal varieties - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated packages. Shared hosting web servers host many clients and therefore the system resources per user account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you prefer without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a data-heavy website, or just has very specific web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You have root-level access and can use 100 percent of the physical server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at HarryHost, offer different hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your necessities. The hardware architectures include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated packages via an SSH console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel interface that we provide does not include complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains lots of online portals that swallow a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the online portals, databases and mail accounts through a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at HarryHost 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 a bonus feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
