When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host many clients and so the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to carry out everything you desire without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-demanding website, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You obtain root privileges and can use 100 percent of the web server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most website hosting companies, incl. us at Web Host EZ, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from according to your necessities. The hardware architectures include different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not offer root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who owns plenty of web sites that consume lots of system resources, but wishes to administer the web portals, databases and e-mail addresses through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Web Host EZ the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access deletes something accidentally.
