Dedicated Servers Disclosed
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main types - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate many clients and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS accounts give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to perform everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated server?
Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring site, or just has very special server architecture requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You gain root access and can use 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your sites.
Most hosting firms, including us at JBW Services, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your demands. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you would like to use the hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains multiple websites that demand a lot of resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and e-mailbox accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the web server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at JBW Services the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two hard drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something by accident.
