Definition of Dedicated Hosting Plans

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 major sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers accommodate a lot of customers and hence the resources per account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the chance to do everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-absorbing web page, or just has very specific server setup requirements, the most relevant option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You have complete root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting suppliers, incl. us at Supernet Domains, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a convenient tool if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we provide does not give you root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who maintains multiple websites that swallow lots of system resources, but would rather manage the online portals, databases and email boxes via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

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 dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Supernet Domains the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by mistake.
