When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic kinds - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared hosting servers accommodate numerous clients and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the opportunity to do everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting 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 quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-absorbing web portal, or simply has very specific server setup requirements, the most reasonable choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You obtain full server root access and can utilize 100% of the web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of website hosting service providers, including us at Dsquad Hosting, provide different hardware architectures you can choose from based on your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is useful software if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not give you full root access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns lots of sites that devour a lot of resources, but desires to manage the web pages, databases and mails through an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers only 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Dsquad Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting distributor 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 server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something by mistake.
