Description of Dedicated Hosting

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three main types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate numerous customers and so the resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the possibility to perform everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a data-heavy web page, or simply has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not an issue. You are given complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

Most website hosting providers, including us at My Host Store, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from on the basis of your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a Control Panel, which is useful software if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer 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-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not include root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who owns plenty of online portals that absorb lots of resources, but desires to manage the websites, databases and e-mailbox accounts via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at My Host Store the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges deletes something by accident.
