Dedicated Hosting Servers Revealed
When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate multiple customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to carry out everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited web site, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You gain root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your sites.
Most shared hosting vendors, including us at esPROes Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your demands. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy graphical user interface if you want to use the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we provide does not offer full server root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of sites that require a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the websites, databases and mailboxes via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the web server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at esPROes 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges erases something by accident.
