When we speak of hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of clients and hence the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a content-heavy website, or just has very special web server configuration requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is of no importance. You receive complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting providers, including us at Big Data HOST IT, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from as per your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell connection only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you full root privileges and is chiefly suitable for someone who runs lots of web pages that require lots of system resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and mail accounts using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Big Data HOST IT the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on two hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something by mistake.
