How Dedicated Servers Function

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host many clients and thus the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS plans give you more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you choose without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your corporation has a resource-demanding web page, or simply has very precise web server configuration requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You acquire complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting service providers, incl. us at Hosting Professional UESE, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your demands. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you would like to use the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you wish to grant root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not offer root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains lots of web sites that swallow lots of system resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and mail addresses via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

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 dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Hosting Professional UESE 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access erases something accidentally.
