Dedicated Server Web Hosting Explanation

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of customers and therefore the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to carry out everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing website, or simply has very specific server setup requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You acquire full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

Most shared web hosting companies, including us at Garnet Hosting, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from as per your demands. The hardware configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you want to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not offer complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns a lot of websites that demand lots of system resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and email aliases using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the web hosting server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Garnet Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges deletes something accidentally.
