When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal sorts - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated packages. Shared web hosting servers host numerous customers and thus the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a large web portal, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the best option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting service providers, including us at Hosting Professional UESE, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated packages through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant root-level access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not give you full root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who runs lots of web portals that require lots of resources, but desires to manage the websites, databases and mail addresses through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. 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 individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something unintentionally.
