When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three basic sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host numerous customers and so the system resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the freedom to do everything you think fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is rather simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring online portal, or simply has very specific web server architecture requirements, the most reasonable choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You are bestowed with root privileges and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting vendors, incl. us at MyNetLabs Web Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware architectures include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is handy software if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting web server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give full root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not offer complete server root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who owns numerous web sites that require a lot of system resources, but prefers to manage the sites, databases and e-mail addresses via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely 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 hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at MyNetLabs Web Hosting 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an extra option - 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 2 hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something unintentionally.
