When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host a lot of clients and hence the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other VPS servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to carry out everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-consuming web site, or simply has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You are bestowed with full server root privileges and can use 100% of the server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most shared hosting distributors, including us at SSD Host ECWebDesigns, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via an SSH console only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not offer complete root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains lots of online portals that consume a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail box accounts via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at SSD Host ECWebDesigns 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 as well. Backups are also an additional option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something by accident.
