When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared servers host multiple clients and thus the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to carry out everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-demanding web portal, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the proper choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You gain complete root access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware specifications

Most shared hosting corporations, including us at esPROes Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you would like to use the web server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who owns plenty of sites that require lots of resources, but would rather manage the websites, databases and e-mailbox accounts via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. 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 individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access deletes something accidentally.
