Dedicated Servers Description
When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 main categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host plenty of customers and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to perform everything you desire without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a big web site, or just has very special server architecture requirements, the smartest choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You receive full server root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
The majority of web hosting service providers, incl. us at SSD Host ECWebDesigns, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from based on your needs. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP 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 Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give full root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not include root privileges and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns a lot of web portals that demand lots of system resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and email box accounts via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only 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 web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at SSD Host ECWebDesigns the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
