How Do Dedicated Servers Work?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated packages. Shared web servers host plenty of clients and hence the system resources per account are restricted, VPS give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to do everything you desire without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited website, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You have full root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting companies, including us at Supreme BroadBand Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from according to your needs. The hardware configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated packages through an SSH tunnel only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to give full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer full root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs many web portals that demand lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and mailbox accounts via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. 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 servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something unintentionally.
