Definition of Dedicated Hosting Packages

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host many clients and therefore the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to do everything you wish without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-consuming site, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You acquire full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting vendors, including us at Impora Server, offer different hardware configurations you can choose from in accordance with your necessities. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not give you complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains many web pages that absorb lots of resources, but wishes to manage the web sites, databases and mail accounts using a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the web server just for yourself, you should pick 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 case of a problem with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Impora Server 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 hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges deletes something by mistake.
