Explanation of Dedicated Hosting Services
When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate plenty of customers and so the resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the option to do everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?
4 GB DDR3 RAM
2x250 GB HDD Hard Drives
8 GB DDR3 RAM
256 GB SSD Hard Drive
Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your company has a high resource-devouring web page, or just has very exact web server architecture requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a problem. You gain full server 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 websites.
Most hosting firms, including us at ENSR.com, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers via an SSH client only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not offer root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains numerous online portals that absorb a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and email box accounts using an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at ENSR.com the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access erases something by accident.
