How Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Operate?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of clients and hence the resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the liberty to carry out everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-requiring web site, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a concern. You have full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of website hosting suppliers, incl. us at SOMOSOTECH Cloud Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from in consonance with your needs. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you wish to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through an SSH console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not include full root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns many web portals that absorb a lot of resources, but desires to administer the web sites, databases and email boxes using an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

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 predicament with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at SOMOSOTECH Cloud Hosting 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 as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access deletes something by accident.
