What Do Dedicated Servers Represent?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared servers host plenty of clients and hence the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a resource-intensive site, or simply has very exact server setup requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You are granted root-level access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

Most web hosting vendors, including us at ACHEMA HOST, offer different hardware configurations you can select from based on your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting through an SSH client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to grant full root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we provide does not give you root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains multiple web sites that absorb lots of system resources, but wants to administer the sites, databases and mail aliases through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at ACHEMA 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 servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something by mistake.
