Dedicated Packages Definition

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic categories - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host numerous customers and hence the resources per account are restricted, VPS packages offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a content-heavy online portal, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You receive root access and can utilize 100% of the web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting suppliers, incl. us at Supreme BroadBand Hosting, provide several hardware configurations you can pick from based on your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not include full root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains plenty of web pages that demand a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the web portals, databases and e-mail accounts using a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the server just 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Supreme BroadBand Hosting 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 an extra feature - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
