When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate many clients and hence the resources per account are restricted, VPS give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a heavy-content web site, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the best option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You have full root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting distributors, including us at webserverbee, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from as per your requirements. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we provide does not include full server root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains a lot of web sites that require lots of resources, but wishes to administer the online portals, databases and email accounts using an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at webserverbee 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 servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something by mistake.
