How Dedicated Hosting Works
When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate numerous customers and so the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to do everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-consuming site, or just has very precise server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You receive full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web pages.
Most web hosting service providers, including us at SIANA HOSTING, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your demands. The configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choice
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via SSH only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not include full server root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has multiple web portals that demand a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and electronic mail accounts using an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the web server only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at SIANA HOSTING 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by mistake.
