What In Fact are Dedicated Servers?
When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main sorts - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host a lot of clients and so the system resources per account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you prefer without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing online portal, or just has very exact server setup requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive root privileges and can utilize 100% of the web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your web portals.
Most hosting vendors, including us at DNMark.com, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from in accordance with your requirements. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to grant root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we offer does not include root privileges and is mainly appropriate for somebody who has plenty of online portals that absorb lots of system resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and e-mail box accounts via an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Web 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 predicament with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at DNMark.com the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access deletes something by mistake.
