How Does Dedicated Hosting Operate?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three principal categories - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host plenty of customers and so the system resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the option to do everything you please without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more expensive than shared servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-swallowing web portal, or simply has very specific server configuration requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You acquire complete root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting providers, incl. us at Billixx IT Consulting, provide different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you would like to use 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 Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell connection only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains multiple web portals that devour a lot of system resources, but prefers to administer the web pages, databases and mailboxes using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Billixx IT Consulting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something by accident.
