When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host lots of customers and so the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the option to carry out everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your company has a resource-requiring site, or just has very explicit server configuration requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You are granted root access and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most shared web hosting distributors, including us at Starektor, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your necessities. The hardware architectures include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient software tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we provide does not offer full root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who has numerous web sites that absorb a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the sites, databases and electronic mail addresses via an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the hosting server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Starektor 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 web hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something unintentionally.
