When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate lots of clients and therefore the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS packages offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-devouring web page, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the proper option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is of no importance. You get root-level access and can use 100 percent of the physical server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting service providers, including us at MyClubWeb Hosting, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from based on your demands. The hardware configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not include full server root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns multiple web pages that devour a lot of system resources, but would rather administer the sites, databases and email aliases using a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the hosting server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

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