When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate many customers and so the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to do everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a frequently visited web page, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are bestowed with root privileges and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at 04 Host, offer several hardware configurations you can select from according to your requirements. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who owns numerous web sites that swallow lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and e-mail box accounts through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

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 predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at 04 Host 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access erases something unintentionally.
