When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic sorts - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of clients and thus the resources per account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to perform everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content website, or just has very specific server architecture requirements, the best option is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You get full root access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

Most web hosting providers, incl. us at Netiquette, offer several hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your needs. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you wish to use the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not offer full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns lots of web portals that require lots of system resources, but desires to manage the sites, databases and email box accounts via an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the web server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Netiquette 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 too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something by mistake.
