What Precisely are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting servers host plenty of customers and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the possibility to do everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a large-scale web portal, or just has very precise server configuration requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a problem. You gain full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting distributors, including us at Malo Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can pick from in accordance with your needs. The hardware configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting servers via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we offer does not give you full root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who has plenty of web pages that consume plenty of system resources, but would rather manage the web pages, databases and mailbox aliases via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Malo Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by mistake.
