Dedicated Web Hosting Description

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic varieties - website hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of customers and therefore the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the freedom to do everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-absorbing web site, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most intelligent option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You gain full server root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware specs

Most hosting distributors, including us at Xephor, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in accordance with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is handy software if you want to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated web hosting servers via an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not give you full root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of web sites that swallow plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the web sites, databases and emails using a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers only 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Xephor the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by mistake.
