Dedicated Servers Hosting Definition

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host plenty of clients and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private servers offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you choose without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-devouring web portal, or just has very precise server architecture requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not a concern. You are bestowed with root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting companies, including us at Cyberdyne Communications Inc, provide different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your necessities. The configurations include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH tunnel only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains many sites that require a lot of resources, but desires to manage the web pages, databases and e-mail accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated servers solely 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 servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Cyberdyne Communications Inc 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 servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something by mistake.
