When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic varieties - shared hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared servers host many customers and therefore the system resources per user account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to perform everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a large-scale web site, or simply has very special server setup requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You have complete root access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most shared web hosting service providers, incl. us at Hosting Profesional, provide different hardware configurations you can select from depending on your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful tool if you wish to utilize the web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant complete server root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not give you full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains lots of websites that demand a lot of resources, but desires to administer the websites, databases and email addresses using a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the hosting server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Hosting Profesional the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
