When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host many clients and thus the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to do everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-absorbing site, or just has very specific web server setup requirements, the most logical option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You get full root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting service providers, incl. us at Carry.Website, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your demands. The configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux 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 client only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we provide does not offer root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who owns a lot of online portals that demand a lot of resources, but wishes to administer the websites, databases and electronic mails through a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Carry.Website 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 an extra feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something by mistake.
