When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host plenty of customers and so the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-consuming site, or simply has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most appropriate option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You get complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting suppliers, incl. us at Intraden, offer different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your demands. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a useful graphical user interface if you want to use the hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not include root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who runs numerous sites that absorb lots of system resources, but prefers to manage the websites, databases and email aliases via an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the web server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Intraden the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep 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 access erases something by accident.
