Dedicated Hosting Plans Uncovered

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host plenty of clients and thus the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-demanding web portal, or just has very exact server configuration requirements, the right choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are given complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware specifications

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at In the Cloud Company Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from according to your demands. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient tool if you want to use the web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who runs lots of web pages that require a lot of system resources, but desires to administer the online portals, databases and emails through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

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 predicament with your server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at In the Cloud Company 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something by accident.
