What Exactly is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three main types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host a lot of customers and so the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-devouring online portal, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a concern. You get root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most shared hosting distributors, including us at BARODA WEB HOST, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware configurations include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP user interface that we offer does not offer complete server root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains many web sites that devour plenty of system resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and mailbox accounts via a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at BARODA WEB HOST the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on 2 disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access erases something by mistake.
