Dedicated Hosting Server
When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting web servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple clients and thus the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting servers offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the possibility to perform everything you want without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated server?
Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a resource-swallowing website, or just has very special server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You are bestowed with complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your web sites.
The majority of website hosting companies, incl. ResellersPanel Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your requirements. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you wish to use the server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. ResellersPanel Hosting, for instance, offers three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your choice
If you are a confident Linux user (most dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting server via an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to give complete root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel GUI that ResellersPanel Hosting provides does not include full root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns a lot of web sites that demand plenty of resources, but desires to manage the web sites, databases and e-mail boxes using an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of using the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. ResellersPanel Hosting monitors all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting web server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on their own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two hard disks as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something by mistake.
