What Actually is Dedicated Hosting?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host a lot of customers and thus the resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the opportunity to do everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a resource-intensive online portal, or just has very specific server configuration requirements, the most logical choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You get complete root-level access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting providers, including us at Seemon Tech, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via SSH only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give complete server root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not include root privileges and is mainly appropriate for someone who has numerous web pages that demand a lot of resources, but would rather manage the sites, databases and email accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root-level access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Seemon Tech the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access erases something by accident.
