When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared servers host lots of clients and hence the resources per user account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you please without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited web site, or just has very precise web server architecture requirements, the proper option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are bestowed with root access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting corporations, incl. us at Serverblue Cloud Systems, provide different hardware architectures you can select from based on your needs. The hardware architectures include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a useful software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated web hosting through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not include root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of online portals that consume a lot of system resources, but prefers to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail aliases using an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select 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 the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Serverblue Cloud Systems 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 servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges deletes something by accident.
