Definition of Dedicated Server Web Hosting

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main categories - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate numerous clients and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-consuming site, or simply has very exact web server setup requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You are given complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting firms, including us at Just-Hosts, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from according to your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy software tool if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not include root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has lots of sites that swallow plenty of resources, but would like to administer the online portals, databases and email addresses using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Just-Hosts the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something unintentionally.
