How Do Dedicated Servers Operate?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 basic categories - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of clients and therefore the resources per account are restricted, VPS packages offer more configuration independence, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to do everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a data-heavy web site, or just has very special server architecture requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You are granted full server root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

The majority of hosting companies, including us at Evolution System Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can select from based on your needs. The hardware architectures include different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting web server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to give root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that we offer does not include root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who runs multiple sites that consume a lot of resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and mail accounts through a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of using the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Evolution System Hosting 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 server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something accidentally.
