How Dedicated Servers Operate

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of customers and so the resources per account are restricted, virtual private servers give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to perform everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a data-heavy web site, or just has very precise server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You obtain complete root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting vendors, including us at e-debugger, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from according to your necessities. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to grant complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not offer complete server root access and is mainly suitable for someone who runs plenty of sites that demand plenty of resources, but wants to administer the web portals, databases and emails via a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

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 hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at e-debugger 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 as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something by accident.
