What Precisely is Dedicated Hosting?

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three main kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host numerous customers and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a large-scale web portal, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You receive root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at TronINDEX, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your demands. The hardware architectures offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting web server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through SSH only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you want to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we offer does not offer complete server root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who has plenty of web portals that devour a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and e-mail addresses using a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at TronINDEX the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something by mistake.
