Description of Dedicated Hosting

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers accommodate plenty of customers and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS hosting give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the option to perform everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a resource-consuming web portal, or just has very exact server setup requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a concern. You are bestowed with root privileges and can use 100 percent of the web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of hosting suppliers, incl. us at lumenhost, offer several hardware configurations you can select from according to your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains many sites that absorb lots of system resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and mail aliases via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at lumenhost the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something by accident.
