When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host a lot of clients and therefore the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private servers give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to do everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a data-heavy web page, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the greater price is of no importance. You have full server root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specs

The majority of hosting companies, including us at Web Hosting Organization, provide several different hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your necessities. The configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you wish to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give complete root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we provide does not give you root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains lots of sites that devour a lot of resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and electronic mails via an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Web Hosting Organization the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access erases something unintentionally.
