Dedicated Servers Explanation

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate plenty of customers and thus the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS packages offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to perform everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your company has a large-scale web site, or simply has very special server setup requirements, the proper choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You gain root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most hosting corporations, including us at TECHNOMERCE, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not include complete server root access and is mainly suitable for someone who maintains multiple web portals that demand a lot of resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and e-mailboxes through an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at TECHNOMERCE 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 as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access erases something accidentally.
