When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web servers host many clients and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are generally much more expensive than shared servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a resource-devouring web portal, or simply has very explicit server configuration requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not an issue. You have full root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting providers, incl. us at vPro Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your needs. The hardware configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server web hosting through an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we provide does not offer complete root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who maintains plenty of web pages that swallow a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail aliases via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated web 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 issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at vPro Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access erases something by accident.
