Dedicated Servers Description

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three principal varieties - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host a lot of clients and so the system resources per account are limited, VPS accounts offer more configuration independence, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to do everything you please without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a large-scale site, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the most reasonable choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You have full root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting vendors, including us at Duty Free Domains, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in keeping with your needs. The hardware architectures include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you would like to use the web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not include full server root privileges and is mainly appropriate for somebody who runs numerous web sites that consume plenty of system resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and email addresses through a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the web hosting server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Duty Free Domains 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 an additional feature - the hosting supplier 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 disks as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
