Dedicated Server Packages Definition

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major categories - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host many customers and therefore the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to perform everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your firm has a big site, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the right option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You obtain full root access and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of shared hosting companies, including us at MyInstantHost, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from in keeping with your necessities. The hardware architectures include different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you want to grant full server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is mainly appropriate for someone who owns multiple websites that require plenty of resources, but prefers to administer the online portals, databases and mailbox accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the web server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at MyInstantHost 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 server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something accidentally.
