What Does Dedicated Hosting Signify?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 principal types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers host lots of clients and hence the system resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very special server configuration requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You have complete root access and can use 100% of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting distributors, including us at Access Global Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not offer complete root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns plenty of web pages that absorb lots of resources, but would like to administer the online portals, databases and mail addresses through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Access Global Hosting 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 too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges deletes something by accident.
