When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host lots of clients and therefore the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you want without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a resource-devouring web page, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You gain complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

Most website hosting corporations, incl. us at 7GreatMedia Hosting Services, provide several different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you wish to use the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a smart idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that we offer does not include full server root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who has a lot of sites that demand lots of system resources, but desires to administer the online portals, databases and email mailboxes via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at 7GreatMedia Hosting Services the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two server hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something unintentionally.
