What Precisely are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?

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

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a frequently visited web page, or just has very exact server architecture requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive full server root privileges and can use 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting service providers, incl. us at RNR Media Hosting, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware configurations include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is handy software if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting through an SSH client only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not include root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs lots of websites that require plenty of resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and e-mails using an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

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 server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at RNR Media Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - 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 same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something by accident.
