What are Dedicated Web Hosting Servers?
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared servers accommodate lots of clients and therefore the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to perform everything you choose without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?
Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a regularly visited online portal, or simply has very exact web server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You are given full root-level access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web sites.
Most shared web hosting companies, incl. us at Asean Hosting, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from in accordance with your needs. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you wish to utilize the web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-reliant 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 client only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP GUI that we offer does not offer full server root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who owns a lot of online portals that consume a lot of resources, but prefers to administer the online portals, databases and mails via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Asean Hosting 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 web hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something by accident.
