Dedicated Web Hosting Definition
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of customers and hence the system resources per account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more configuration independence, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to do everything you choose without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated server?
16 GB DDR4 ECC REG RAM
2x240 GB nvme Hard Drives
32 GB DDR4 ECC REG RAM
2x480 GB nvme Hard Drives
Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited web portal, or just has very precise server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You are bestowed with root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your sites.
The majority of web hosting vendors, including us at iTech Solution, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from according to your demands. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is handy software if you would like to use the hosting server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you want to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not offer complete root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who runs many online portals that swallow lots of system resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and email addresses using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the web hosting server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at iTech Solution 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 server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something accidentally.
