How Dedicated Hosting Operates

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers accommodate many customers and thus the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other VPSs on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you please without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-demanding web page, or simply has very specific server configuration requirements, the right option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You receive full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting corporations, including us at Genius Cloud Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your demands. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you wish to use the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through SSH exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we provide does not offer full root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs lots of sites that devour lots of resources, but would like to administer the websites, databases and mailbox aliases via an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting servers 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 hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Genius Cloud Hosting 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 a bonus option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something by accident.
