What Indeed is Dedicated Web Hosting?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main types - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting web servers host a lot of customers and therefore the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the option to carry out everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a high-traffic website, or just has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the right option is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the greater price is not an issue. You obtain full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting companies, including us at DgteInternet.Com, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your needs. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications 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 OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting through an SSH console only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to grant full root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not give you root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns numerous online portals that consume a lot of system resources, but would rather manage the online portals, databases and e-mail accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers 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 web hosting servers 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 good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at DgteInternet.Com the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
