When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of customers and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server plans give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the option to perform everything you think fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very special server architecture requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are granted full server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting firms, incl. us at Kiaran IT Services, offer different hardware configurations you can pick from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the dedicated server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant root-level access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not include full root-level access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who owns numerous web portals that demand lots of resources, but wishes to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail accounts using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Kiaran IT Services the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting company 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 two server hard disks as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something by accident.
