Dedicated Hosting Services Description

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of clients and so the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to perform everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing website, or just has very exact server architecture requirements, the right choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not a problem. You acquire full server root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting providers, incl. us at Billixx Cloud Services, offer different hardware configurations you can choose from according to your demands. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you wish to utilize the server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you wish to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we offer does not include root privileges and is mainly appropriate for someone who owns multiple sites that consume lots of system resources, but would rather administer the web pages, databases and mail addresses via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the hosting server just for yourself, you should select 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 case of a problem with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Billixx Cloud Services the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access deletes something by mistake.
