When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 basic kinds - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate many customers and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the liberty to carry out everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a busy web site, or simply has very explicit server architecture requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You receive root privileges and can use 100% of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting companies, incl. us at AdTO Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your requirements. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting via an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not give you complete root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains multiple web sites that require lots of system resources, but wants to administer the web pages, databases and e-mail accounts via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers just 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 web hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at AdTO Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something accidentally.
