Description of Dedicated Hosting
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of customers and thus the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration independence, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the independence to perform everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a content-heavy website, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the most suitable choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You gain root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web portals.
Most hosting companies, incl. us at In the Cloud Company Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can select from in accordance with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful GUI if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting through an SSH client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not include root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who has plenty of sites that absorb plenty of system resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and mailboxes via an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at In the Cloud Company Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on two hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something by accident.
