How Dedicated Servers Function

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major kinds - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate a lot of customers and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more configuration independence, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your company has a high resource-absorbing site, or just has very precise web server architecture requirements, the most reasonable choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You get root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting service providers, including us at 95Dollar.Website, provide several hardware configurations you can select from depending on your needs. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you wish to use the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via SSH only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to grant root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not include root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who has multiple web sites that require plenty of system resources, but wishes to manage the sites, databases and mails via an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at 95Dollar.Website 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 server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something by mistake.
