How Dedicated Servers Hosting Works
When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 principal kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate a lot of clients and therefore the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the independence to do everything you like without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?
Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a resource-consuming website, or simply has very special web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are bestowed with full server root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your online portals.
The majority of website hosting service providers, incl. us at Nebula One, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from based on your needs. The hardware architectures include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains plenty of web portals that require lots of system resources, but wants to manage the web portals, databases and mailboxes via an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Nebula One 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 too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges deletes something by mistake.
