How Dedicated Hosting Operates

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major types - hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated packages. Shared hosting servers accommodate a lot of clients and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS give you more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to perform everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a resource-intensive website, or simply has very precise server architecture requirements, the most reasonable choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You gain complete root access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting corporations, including us at VaporRave.com, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your demands. The configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated packages through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we provide does not give you full root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns multiple online portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but desires to administer the online portals, databases and email addresses using an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at VaporRave.com the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something accidentally.
