What In Fact are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web servers host lots of customers and therefore the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the option to do everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing online portal, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

Most shared web hosting providers, including us at Comxen, provide different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your needs. The hardware configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you want to utilize the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you want to give full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP user interface that we provide does not include complete server root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who owns many web portals that absorb lots of system resources, but would like to administer the online portals, databases and electronic mail accounts through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting web server just 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 web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Comxen the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by accident.
