When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host plenty of clients and so the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to do everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-consuming online portal, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a problem. You acquire complete root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting corporations, incl. us at Plenty-Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can pick from based on your needs. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different traffic quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting via an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not offer root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains many online portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and mail aliases via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Plenty-Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something accidentally.
