What In Fact are Dedicated Servers?
When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main types - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host many clients and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to carry out everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated server?
Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a high resource-devouring website, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is of no concern. You gain root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your websites.
The majority of shared hosting service providers, incl. us at SuNombre.co - Dominios y Hosting, offer several hardware configurations you can pick from as per your requirements. The hardware configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you would like to utilize the web server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not include complete root-level access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs many web portals that demand a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the online portals, databases and mailbox accounts via a user-friendly hosting CP. 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 hosting accounts rather than utilizing the server only 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at SuNombre.co - Dominios y 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 as well. Backups are also an additional option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root access erases something unintentionally.
