When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 major types - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate lots of customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS accounts give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to do everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a intense-traffic web page, or simply has very specific server setup requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting providers, including us at TecWeb21 Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from according to your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a useful software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we offer does not give you complete server root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who owns many online portals that absorb lots of system resources, but would like to manage the sites, databases and electronic mail accounts through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at TecWeb21 Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something by accident.
