When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main categories - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate multiple customers and hence the resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the freedom to perform everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a content-heavy website, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the best option is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no concern. You gain full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting firms, incl. us at Impora Server, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting through SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to give full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not give you full server root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who maintains many sites that absorb plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the sites, databases and mail accounts using a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort 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 too. Backups are also an additional option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something by accident.
