Dedicated Servers Hosting Unveiled

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host numerous clients and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to perform everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-demanding website, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You are bestowed with complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specs

Most shared hosting distributors, including us at LCS IT and Media Services Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from on the basis of your needs. The hardware architectures include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you wish to use the dedicated web hosting server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant root-level access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we provide does not offer complete server root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns many online portals that devour lots of resources, but wishes to manage the web portals, databases and e-mail boxes via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at LCS IT and Media Services Hosting 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something by mistake.
