When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate plenty of clients and hence the system resources per user account are limited, VPS give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a popular web portal, or simply has very specific server setup requirements, the most logical choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are given full server root access and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting firms, including us at Hosting Plus de Proyco Corporacion, offer different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH connection only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to grant root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not give you full server root privileges and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains lots of online portals that absorb a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the web pages, databases and mail addresses using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Hosting Plus de Proyco Corporacion 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 servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access erases something accidentally.
