Definition of Dedicated Hosting

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of customers and so the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to perform everything you like without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-consuming web page, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the proper choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You receive root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting providers, incl. us at webmotionhosting, provide different hardware configurations you can select from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you wish to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via SSH exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to grant complete root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we offer does not include complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who has plenty of sites that absorb a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the web portals, databases and e-mail boxes through a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at webmotionhosting 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 servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - 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 hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something accidentally.
