Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Description

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main types - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of customers and so the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the option to do everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a data-heavy web site, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not a concern. You are bestowed with full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting providers, incl. us at 7-24 Web Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from based on your requirements. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a convenient software tool if you wish to use the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated web hosting servers through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not include full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of web portals that require plenty of resources, but would like to manage the websites, databases and e-mail addresses using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at 7-24 Web Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access deletes something by mistake.
