When we speak of hosting servers, there are three major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers accommodate lots of clients and hence the resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the opportunity to perform everything you want without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the smartest option is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You acquire complete root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting service providers, including us at Web Culture, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy software tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting through an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not offer full server root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who has a lot of web pages that consume lots of system resources, but would rather administer the web portals, databases and email mailbox accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Web Culture the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something unintentionally.
