When we speak of hosting servers, there are three major varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple clients and thus the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a intense-traffic web site, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are given root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting suppliers, incl. us at Obour Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from as per your needs. The configurations include different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of web sites that demand plenty of resources, but would like to administer the sites, databases and mailbox accounts via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the hosting server solely 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Obour Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something by mistake.
