How Dedicated Servers Operate

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host lots of clients and thus the resources per account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the option to perform everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-consuming web page, or simply has very exact web server configuration requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You have full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting suppliers, including us at Papua Web Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from in accordance with your requirements. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we offer does not give you full root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns multiple web portals that consume a lot of system resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and e-mailboxes using an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Papua Web 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 feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on 2 hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access erases something by accident.
