When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 major types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated packages. Shared hosting web servers accommodate a lot of customers and so the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to carry out everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing website, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You acquire root-level access and can use 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting companies, incl. us at webreg, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from in consonance with your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a useful software tool if you would like to use the dedicated 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 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated packages via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not offer root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains numerous websites that absorb a lot of resources, but prefers to administer the websites, databases and email mailboxes via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at webreg the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access erases something by accident.
