When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host numerous clients and hence the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to perform everything you desire without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a resource-demanding site, or simply has very special web server configuration requirements, the proper option is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You receive complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting service providers, incl. us at Connektiva Web Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can choose from on the basis of your demands. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy software tool if you would like to use the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we provide does not include full server root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who has plenty of websites that swallow a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail accounts through an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Connektiva Web Hosting 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by mistake.
