What Does Dedicated Hosting Mean?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate many clients and so the resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the option to perform everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a resource-devouring online portal, or just has very exact web server setup requirements, the most appropriate option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You acquire full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of website hosting distributors, including us at Cyber 16, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers via an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you want to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we provide does not give you complete server root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who runs lots of sites that demand lots of system resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and mail aliases through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

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 server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Cyber 16 the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by accident.
