Description of Dedicated Hosting

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate multiple clients and so the system resources per account are limited, VPS plans offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the option to carry out everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing web portal, or simply has very special web server setup requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the greater price is not a problem. You acquire full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting distributors, incl. us at TronINDEX, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from on the basis of your demands. The configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you want to utilize the web hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP user interface that we offer does not include full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who has multiple web pages that absorb a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and e-mails via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. 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 server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting distributor 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 two disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something accidentally.
