When we speak of hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - shared website hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web servers host many clients and hence the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to perform everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a high resource-requiring web site, or just has very special server setup requirements, the smartest choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are bestowed with complete root access and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting companies, including us at Supernet Domains, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from on the basis of your requirements. The hardware architectures include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you want to utilize the hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP user interface that we offer does not offer full server root privileges and is chiefly suitable for someone who runs multiple websites that demand a lot of resources, but desires to administer the web portals, databases and email mailbox accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Supernet Domains the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by accident.
