When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 principal categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of customers and hence the resources per user account are limited, VPS accounts give you more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to perform everything you desire without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your company has a heavy resource-swallowing online portal, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You gain complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting providers, incl. us at NtuBed Global Web Host, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from as per your necessities. The hardware architectures include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH client only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we provide does not offer full root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns a lot of web sites that devour plenty of system resources, but wants to manage the online portals, databases and e-mails via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root-level access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than using the web hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at NtuBed Global Web Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something by accident.
