When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple clients and hence the system resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to perform everything you like without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-devouring website, or just has very specific server setup requirements, the best option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You are granted root privileges and can use 100% of the web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting companies, including us at Idca Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from based on your needs. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not include full root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who owns multiple web pages that demand lots of resources, but would like to manage the sites, databases and e-mails using an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the web server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Idca Hosting 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 hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access deletes something accidentally.
