Definition of Dedicated Hosting
When we speak of hosting servers, there are three major types - shared hosting web servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate a lot of clients and thus the resources per user account are limited, VPS plans give you more configuration liberty, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you want without messing with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated server?
Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a large-scale site, or just has very exact server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You receive root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web portals.
Most hosting suppliers, including us at Nickam Web Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can choose from in keeping with your needs. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a convenient tool if you want to use the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give root-level access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we offer does not include complete root access and is mostly suitable for someone who has numerous websites that require a lot of resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and mail accounts via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting server only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Nickam Web Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something unintentionally.
