Dedicated Server Web Hosting Explanation

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared servers host plenty of clients and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the freedom to do everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-demanding site, or just has very specific server setup requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no concern. You obtain root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting suppliers, including us at AeroGateway, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in keeping with your necessities. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you want to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting servers via an SSH connection exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not offer root-level access and is mostly suitable for someone who owns lots of web pages that absorb a lot of resources, but prefers to administer the online portals, databases and email mailbox accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at AeroGateway the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
