Dedicated Hosting Disclosed

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web servers accommodate lots of customers and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to do everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-swallowing web page, or simply has very special server setup requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You get root privileges and can use 100% of the server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at RisesWebs, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your needs. The configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a handy software tool if you wish to use the web server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH connection only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give complete root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you full root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who has many web sites that require lots of system resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and email mailboxes via a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the server only 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at RisesWebs the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
