What In Fact is Dedicated Hosting?

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three principal sorts - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host a lot of customers and hence the system resources per account are limited, VPS give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to carry out everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-consuming web site, or just has very explicit server architecture requirements, the wisest option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not an issue. You get complete root-level access and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting companies, including us at Malta Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in consonance with your demands. The hardware architectures include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through SSH only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we provide does not include root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns many web portals that swallow a lot of resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and mailbox accounts via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Malta Hosting 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 hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by accident.
