When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate lots of customers and thus the system resources per user account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more configuration independence, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you desire without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-devouring site, or just has very specific web server setup requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You have full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting distributors, including us at Cloud Web Solutions, offer different hardware configurations you can select from depending on your requirements. The hardware architectures include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give root-level access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not offer full server root privileges and is mainly suitable for somebody who has lots of online portals that require plenty of system resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail box accounts through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Cloud Web Solutions 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access erases something by mistake.
