Explanation of Dedicated Hosting
When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic kinds - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host lots of customers and so the system resources per account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration independence, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to do everything you decide without messing with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are commonly 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 pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-swallowing web portal, or just has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are granted full server root privileges and can use 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
The majority of website hosting service providers, incl. us at Comtech Pal, provide several hardware configurations you can select from in line with your demands. The hardware architectures offer different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell console only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we offer does not offer root access and is mainly suitable for someone who has plenty of sites that consume a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and e-mailboxes using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Comtech Pal 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 hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something by accident.
