When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared servers host plenty of customers and thus the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the option to perform everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring web site, or simply has very specific web server architecture requirements, the best option is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You obtain complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting firms, including us at DomainsVM, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting via an SSH console only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not give you root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains multiple web portals that swallow lots of resources, but wants to administer the sites, databases and mailbox aliases using an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at DomainsVM the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access erases something unintentionally.
