What Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Mean?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate numerous customers and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the liberty to do everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a large site, or just has very special server architecture requirements, the wisest option is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You are given complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting providers, including us at Masry Technology Hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from on the basis of your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers through a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not offer root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has a lot of websites that demand plenty of resources, but would like to administer the web sites, databases and electronic mails using an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Masry Technology Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by mistake.
