What Exactly is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main types - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host lots of customers and thus the resources per account are limited, virtual private servers give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to do everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a content-heavy web portal, or just has very special web server configuration requirements, the most logical choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are given full root access and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting suppliers, incl. us at myhypercloud.com, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from depending on your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of Control Panel 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 powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH terminal only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we provide does not offer complete root-level access and is mainly suitable for somebody who has a lot of sites that require a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the sites, databases and email addresses using a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose 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 the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at myhypercloud.com 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 as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access erases something by mistake.
