Definition of Dedicated Hosting Packages
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host numerous customers and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to perform everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-demanding online portal, or simply has very special server setup requirements, the most relevant option is a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not an issue. You are bestowed with full root access and can use 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your web portals.
The majority of web hosting vendors, incl. us at Net JA, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in consonance with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you want to use the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to grant root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not offer full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains a lot of online portals that swallow lots of resources, but would like to administer the sites, databases and electronic mail addresses using an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of using the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should pick 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 predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Net JA the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something by mistake.
