When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of customers and thus the system resources per account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the option to carry out everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a heavy-traffic website, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most suitable choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not an issue. You obtain complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting service providers, including us at My Web Services, provide several hardware configurations you can select from depending on your needs. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful software tool if you wish to use the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we provide does not give you root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains many web sites that demand plenty of system resources, but wishes to administer the web portals, databases and mailbox aliases through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than using the web hosting server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at My Web Services 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 web hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
