When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three main kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate numerous customers and thus the system resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the autonomy to carry out everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a data-heavy site, or just has very exact web server configuration requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting vendors, including us at Wise Host Network, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give root-level access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not give you root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who has multiple web portals that require plenty of resources, but prefers to manage the web sites, databases and e-mails via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Wise Host Network the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something unintentionally.
