Dedicated Servers Definition

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main types - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of clients and so the resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private servers give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you like without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a resource-absorbing website, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are bestowed with root-level access and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting service providers, incl. us at Innowebhost, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to give full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we provide does not give you root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains numerous sites that devour plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the web portals, databases and mail accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Innowebhost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges deletes something by accident.
