Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Uncovered
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 major sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared hosting servers accommodate numerous customers and therefore the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the freedom to do everything you see fit without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?
Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a resource-devouring website, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most logical choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You gain complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web pages.
The majority of web hosting vendors, incl. us at Free Giga Host, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your requirements. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server web hosting through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not include complete root-level access and is mainly appropriate for someone who runs multiple online portals that require a lot of system resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and e-mail box accounts through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated web 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Free Giga Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access erases something by accident.
