Dedicated Servers Explanation

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal categories - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated packages. Shared hosting servers accommodate a lot of clients and therefore the system resources per account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to do everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a large web page, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the proper option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting firms, including us at Bisdak World Online Web Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from based on your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to give complete server root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a good idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that we offer does not include root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who runs plenty of websites that require a lot of system resources, but would like to administer the web portals, databases and e-mail accounts through a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should pick 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 the event of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Bisdak World Online Web 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 servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something accidentally.
