When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 major sorts - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated packages. Shared servers host multiple clients and thus the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you prefer without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a large web site, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not a concern. You acquire full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting suppliers, including us at Plinghost, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from depending on your necessities. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful software tool if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated packages via an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you want to grant complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not offer full root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who owns plenty of online portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the sites, databases and electronic mail accounts using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose 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 the event of a problem with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Plinghost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access erases something by accident.
