Description of Dedicated Server Plans
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of clients and so the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you choose without messing with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a content-heavy web page, or just has very precise web server architecture requirements, the most logical option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You get root access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your sites.
The majority of shared hosting service providers, including us at e-debugger, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you wish to use the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a confident Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we provide does not offer complete root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who runs many online portals that absorb plenty of system resources, but desires to manage the websites, databases and electronic mail addresses through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated web hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at e-debugger 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 too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something unintentionally.
