What Exactly are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web hosting servers host numerous clients and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the liberty to carry out everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a high resource-devouring web page, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You gain full root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting corporations, incl. us at HotDogJoe, offer different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your requirements. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server web hosting through SSH only. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is mainly suitable for somebody who has numerous web pages that swallow plenty of system resources, but would rather administer the web portals, databases and electronic mails through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers solely 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at HotDogJoe the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access erases something unintentionally.
