What Precisely is Dedicated Hosting?
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal categories - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host lots of customers and hence the resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a resource-demanding web site, or just has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You are granted full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web sites.
Most web hosting service providers, including us at nextlevelwebhost, provide several hardware architectures you can select from in consonance with your needs. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you want to utilize the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not include full root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains plenty of online portals that demand a lot of resources, but would like to administer the sites, databases and mails using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at nextlevelwebhost 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on two hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access erases something by accident.
