Dedicated Hosting Servers Description
When we talk about hosting servers, there are three major varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared servers host lots of customers and so the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more configuration independence, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to carry out everything you desire without messing with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your corporation has a resource-devouring online portal, or just has very specific web server setup requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You are bestowed with root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your websites.
Most web hosting providers, including us at Bru/Mar Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in keeping with your necessities. The configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to use the dedicated server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your preference
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to grant root-level access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not give you root-level access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who has multiple sites that devour lots of resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and mail addresses through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of using the server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Bru/Mar Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access erases something by mistake.
