Dedicated Web Hosting Explanation

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host a lot of customers and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a resource-swallowing online portal, or simply has very special web server architecture requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You are granted full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting vendors, including us at x1plorar Hosting, offer several hardware configurations you can pick from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you would like to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs multiple web pages that consume a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the web sites, databases and e-mails via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at x1plorar Hosting 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 servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something accidentally.
