How Dedicated Hosting Servers Function

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers host many customers and hence the resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you like without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a intense-traffic web portal, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are granted full root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting service providers, including us at Impora Server, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give complete root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we offer does not give you full root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who owns numerous websites that devour lots of resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and mailbox accounts through an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue 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 downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Impora Server 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root access deletes something by mistake.
