Dedicated Hosting Servers Description

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 major kinds - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web servers host many clients and thus the system resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to carry out everything you think fit without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited web page, or simply has very explicit server setup requirements, the smartest choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You gain full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting companies, incl. us at UK-HQ Internet Services, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your requirements. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you want to utilize the hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH console only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not include full server root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who has numerous sites that demand a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the online portals, databases and mailbox aliases via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the web server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at UK-HQ Internet Services 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by accident.
