When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal types - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host plenty of clients and thus the system resources per account are limited, virtual private servers offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to do everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing web site, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You receive root access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting distributors, including us at webmotionhosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can choose from as per your demands. The hardware architectures include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

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 through a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we provide does not include full server root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who has plenty of web pages that devour a lot of resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and electronic mails via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at webmotionhosting 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 servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
