What Does Dedicated Hosting Signify?

When we speak of hosting servers, there are three main types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers host numerous customers and therefore the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the liberty to perform everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is rather simple. If your corporation has a popular web page, or just has very specific server architecture requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a problem. You are given root-level access and can utilize 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting providers, incl. us at Wise Host Network, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer full root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who has many web sites that swallow plenty of resources, but prefers to administer the online portals, databases and e-mail boxes through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. 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 feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something accidentally.
