Explanation of Dedicated Web Hosting

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major types - website hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting servers host numerous clients and therefore the resources per account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the freedom to perform everything you think fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a high resource-demanding web site, or just has very precise web server setup requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You are given complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting distributors, incl. us at Innovator Host, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 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 dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated web hosting through an SSH terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not give you full root privileges and is mainly suitable for somebody who maintains plenty of web portals that demand a lot of resources, but desires to manage the web portals, databases and electronic mail addresses via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Innovator Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something by mistake.
