What Does Dedicated Hosting Represent?

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 principal categories - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host plenty of customers and so the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a big web site, or just has very precise server configuration requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a problem. You acquire full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the physical server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

Most shared hosting providers, including us at Creative Web Host, offer different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your requirements. The hardware configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to utilize the hosting server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we provide does not offer root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns a lot of web portals that consume plenty of resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and email accounts using an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the web server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Creative Web Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something unintentionally.
