Definition of Dedicated Web Hosting

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal types - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate many clients and so the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the option to do everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a resource-swallowing web page, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You have full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware specs

The majority of hosting companies, including us at Green Data Hosting, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your needs. The configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated web hosting through a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not give you root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns multiple online portals that require lots of system resources, but would rather manage the sites, databases and e-mailboxes via an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Green Data Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting company 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 disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something by mistake.
