Dedicated Server Packages Explanation

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host plenty of clients and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to carry out everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your corporation has a data-heavy web page, or just has very explicit server setup requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You are granted full server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware configurations

Most shared hosting vendors, incl. us at BrentHost '', offer different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your demands. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you want to utilize the web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not offer full root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns multiple web pages that swallow a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the web pages, databases and email boxes via an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should choose 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 case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at BrentHost '' the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
