What is Dedicated Hosting?
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major types - hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host multiple clients and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the option to do everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your company has a heavy-content web site, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the proper choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You are granted full root privileges and can use 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your online portals.
The majority of website hosting corporations, incl. us at Real Tech Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from in accordance with your needs. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to give full root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not include full root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who owns plenty of online portals that demand plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the web pages, databases and e-mailboxes via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick 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 server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Real Tech Hosting 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 servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access deletes something by mistake.
