Dedicated Hosting Description

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three principal varieties - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate plenty of customers and therefore the system resources per account are limited, VPS offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the option to perform everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is rather simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited web portal, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You are bestowed with full root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting companies, incl. us at Besafe1st Hosting, offer several hardware architectures you can select from as per your needs. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell connection only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP user interface that we offer does not offer root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who has a lot of sites that absorb plenty of resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and email aliases through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Besafe1st Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
