Description of Dedicated Web Hosting

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three major sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host a lot of customers and so the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to carry out everything you desire without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a heavy-content web page, or simply has very specific server architecture requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You are given full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware specs

The majority of website hosting service providers, incl. us at Dsquad Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from depending on your demands. The configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to grant full server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we offer does not offer full root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who maintains plenty of web sites that swallow plenty of system resources, but wishes to administer the sites, databases and e-mail accounts via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Dsquad Hosting 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 web hosting server too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting supplier 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 hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access deletes something accidentally.
