When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic categories - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate a lot of clients and so the resources per account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-consuming web page, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You acquire complete root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting vendors, including us at TechNE, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from according to your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not include full root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains lots of web pages that absorb lots of system resources, but desires to administer the web portals, databases and email box accounts using an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and include 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 select one of these two.

Web 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 problem with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at TechNE the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access erases something by accident.
