Dedicated Servers Explanation

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three major varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host a lot of clients and thus the resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private servers give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your firm has a high resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You receive root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at BrentHost '', offer different hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your requirements. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a useful interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant complete server root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not offer full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains plenty of web portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the web pages, databases and mail accounts through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just 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 case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at BrentHost '' 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 servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something accidentally.
