Dedicated Hosting Description
When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared servers accommodate plenty of customers and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to do everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a resource-absorbing web portal, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most relevant option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are granted full root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web pages.
The majority of shared hosting service providers, including us at Venture Hosting, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from as per your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to use the dedicated hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting CP user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains many web portals that swallow a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the web sites, databases and mail addresses using an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Venture 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access deletes something unintentionally.
