When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 main types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate a lot of customers and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the option to perform everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a resource-intensive website, or just has very explicit web server setup requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You are bestowed with complete root access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting suppliers, including us at Billixx IT Consulting, provide several different hardware architectures you can pick from depending on your demands. The configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is convenient software if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting through a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we provide does not offer full root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who owns many sites that require plenty of resources, but wishes to administer the web sites, databases and e-mail accounts through an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Billixx IT Consulting 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 too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by mistake.
