When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers host plenty of customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a content-heavy web page, or simply has very special server setup requirements, the proper option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain complete root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting service providers, including us at Nex2Host, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your needs. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not give you root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who has lots of web portals that absorb plenty of system resources, but would rather manage the web sites, databases and mail aliases via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers 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 servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Nex2Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something accidentally.
