When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three main varieties - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host lots of clients and hence the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to carry out everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited online portal, or simply has very specific server architecture requirements, the best choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You get root access and can use 100% of the server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting companies, including us at World Host Group, offer several hardware architectures you can select from on the basis of your requirements. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient software tool if you wish to use the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to grant root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not offer full server root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains lots of web portals that devour lots of resources, but wants to administer the sites, databases and email box accounts via an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than using the web server just 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 server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at World Host Group 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 a bonus feature - the web 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 two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access erases something accidentally.
