What Exactly is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main kinds - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate a lot of clients and hence the resources per account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to do everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a big web portal, or just has very specific server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You acquire root access and can use 100% of the hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting distributors, incl. us at kuwait.gr, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you would like to use the server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use 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 web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant complete root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia Control Panel user interface that we offer does not include full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for someone who has many websites that demand plenty of resources, but would like to administer the web sites, databases and e-mail aliases via a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at kuwait.gr 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 a bonus option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something unintentionally.
