Dedicated Servers Definition

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of clients and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, VPS offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to perform everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-swallowing website, or simply has very explicit server configuration requirements, the right choice is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You get complete root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of hosting vendors, incl. us at TronINDEX, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from in keeping with your demands. The hardware configurations include different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via SSH only. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not include full root privileges and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns plenty of web sites that consume plenty of resources, but desires to administer the web pages, databases and e-mails through a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web 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 hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at TronINDEX the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something unintentionally.
