Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Description

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web servers host lots of clients and hence the system resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to do everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not a concern. You have full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most shared web hosting firms, including us at Top Hosting Provider, provide several hardware configurations you can select from based on your requirements. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is convenient software if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not give you complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who runs plenty of web portals that require lots of system resources, but prefers to administer the web sites, databases and e-mail boxes using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Top Hosting Provider 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 web hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
