Dedicated Hosting Servers Explained
When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate plenty of clients and hence the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the opportunity to do everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?
16 GB DDR4 ECC REG RAM
2x240 GB nvme Hard Drives
32 GB DDR4 ECC REG RAM
2x480 GB nvme Hard Drives
Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a large-scale site, or simply has very explicit server architecture requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You are bestowed with complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web portals.
Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at Valeno Web Hosting Solutions, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your necessities. The hardware architectures include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choice
If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers through an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give complete server root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we offer does not include complete server root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who maintains a lot of websites that devour plenty of resources, but would rather manage the web sites, databases and electronic mail addresses through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Valeno Web Hosting Solutions the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something accidentally.
