What Exactly is Dedicated Hosting?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host a lot of clients and hence the system resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to perform everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a resource-devouring web portal, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is not a problem. You acquire full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting firms, incl. us at DOMINIOS Y HOSTING PERU, offer different hardware configurations you can pick from in keeping with your requirements. The configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a convenient software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not include root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who runs a lot of websites that require plenty of resources, but wishes to manage the web portals, databases and e-mailbox accounts via an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at DOMINIOS Y HOSTING PERU 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 hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges erases something unintentionally.
