Description of Dedicated Hosting

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 major types - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of clients and therefore the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the option to do everything you want without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing online portal, or simply has very explicit server setup requirements, the wisest option is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are given root access and can use 100 percent of the physical server's resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

Most shared hosting corporations, incl. us at Bethnan Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your requirements. The configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a handy graphical user interface if you wish to utilize the web server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you want to give complete server root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not give you complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has numerous web pages that demand plenty of system resources, but prefers to administer the online portals, databases and electronic mail accounts using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Bethnan Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something by accident.
