What are Dedicated Hosting Servers?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate many clients and hence the resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you wish without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-consuming online portal, or simply has very explicit server configuration requirements, the most reasonable choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You obtain full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting service providers, incl. us at Nawazish, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from in accordance with your demands. The hardware architectures include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a handy software tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting via an SSH connection exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not give you full server root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who owns plenty of web pages that swallow plenty of system resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and e-mailbox accounts through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Nawazish the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access deletes something by mistake.
