When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host lots of clients and so the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very specific server configuration requirements, the smartest option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You gain root access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting firms, including us at Duty Free Domains, provide different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your demands. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient software tool if you want to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not give you full server root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who has lots of web pages that consume lots of resources, but wishes to administer the online portals, databases and electronic mail accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Duty Free Domains 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 too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access erases something by accident.
