When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major categories - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared servers accommodate multiple customers and so the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server accounts give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the option to perform everything you choose without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-demanding web portal, or simply has very precise server architecture requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You get root-level access and can use 100% of the web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting companies, including us at SmartHosting4u, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from in line with your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH connection only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to give full root privileges to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains plenty of web pages that absorb plenty of resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and e-mailboxes using a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the web server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at SmartHosting4u 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 web hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something accidentally.
