When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three major sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host numerous customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a heavy-traffic site, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the right option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You obtain full root privileges and can utilize 100% of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting suppliers, incl. us at DMR Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from as per your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include full root-level access and is mostly suitable for somebody who owns multiple sites that swallow plenty of resources, but wants to manage the sites, databases and mail aliases through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the web hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at DMR Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by accident.
