Definition of Dedicated Hosting Packages
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers host a lot of clients and hence the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you want without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-devouring website, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You acquire full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and interfering with your websites.
Most website hosting suppliers, including us at CIS Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your demands. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give complete server root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not include root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who runs multiple online portals that swallow lots of system resources, but wishes to administer the web portals, databases and email boxes via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at CIS Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by accident.
