When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host many clients and thus the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a high-traffic online portal, or just has very precise server configuration requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You get complete server root access and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting suppliers, incl. us at Elias Store, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from on the basis of your demands. The hardware architectures offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we offer does not offer full root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who maintains a lot of web pages that absorb lots of resources, but desires to administer the sites, databases and email box accounts via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should select 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 case of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Elias Store the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two hard drives as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges deletes something by mistake.
