When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main types - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host a lot of clients and thus the system resources per account are restricted, VPS accounts give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to do everything you wish without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a high resource-demanding site, or simply has very precise server setup requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You receive root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting distributors, including us at GEC RACK - Best Enterprise Web And Cloud Hosting Solutions, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from according to your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a convenient user interface if you wish to use the dedicated web server for hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we provide does not offer root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns lots of sites that consume a lot of system resources, but wants to administer the websites, databases and mail accounts via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the web server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful 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 have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access deletes something by mistake.
