When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of clients and thus the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS packages give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to perform everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited site, or simply has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most suitable choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You are granted full server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting vendors, including us at Best Paid Hosting, provide different hardware architectures you can select from as per your requirements. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy software tool if you would like to utilize the server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not offer root privileges and is mainly appropriate for someone who has plenty of online portals that swallow lots of resources, but prefers to administer the web pages, databases and e-mails via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the web hosting server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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 web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Best Paid 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 server too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something unintentionally.
