Dedicated Hosting Services Description

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers host a lot of customers and therefore the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the chance to do everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a large web portal, or simply has very precise server configuration requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting companies, including us at Host705, offer different hardware configurations you can select from according to your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to give access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we provide does not give you root access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns a lot of sites that consume plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the web pages, databases and email accounts using an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Host705 the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 hard drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
