Definition of Dedicated Plans

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three main types - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate many clients and so the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a busy website, or just has very exact server configuration requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You get full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting corporations, incl. us at GEC RACK - Best Enterprise Web And Cloud Hosting Solutions, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from based on your necessities. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a useful tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who maintains numerous web sites that swallow a lot of resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and electronic mail accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated servers just 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at GEC RACK - Best Enterprise Web And Cloud Hosting Solutions the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
