When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three major types - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate lots of clients and so the system resources per user account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to perform everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a resource-requiring web portal, or just has very exact server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You obtain full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting firms, incl. us at Host54, provide different hardware architectures you can select from according to your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is handy software if you want to use the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through SSH only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not offer full server root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who has many web pages that devour plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the web portals, databases and electronic mails via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of using the server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

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 predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Host54 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 extra option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something accidentally.
