When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host numerous clients and therefore the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to do everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a resource-swallowing website, or simply has very explicit server architecture requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You are bestowed with root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting service providers, including us at HADO Host, provide several hardware architectures you can select from on the basis of your necessities. The configurations include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you want to utilize the dedicated server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not offer root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has lots of sites that absorb a lot of resources, but desires to manage the websites, databases and e-mailbox accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at HADO Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access deletes something by mistake.
