When we speak of hosting servers, there are three major kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate many clients and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the autonomy to carry out everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a popular site, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You acquire root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting service providers, including us at Holt Technology Corporation, provide several hardware configurations you can select from on the basis of your necessities. The configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you want to give complete root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel interface that we provide does not give you full root access and is mainly suitable for someone who maintains plenty of web portals that consume a lot of resources, but wants to administer the web pages, databases and e-mail boxes via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers 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 useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Holt Technology Corporation the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access deletes something accidentally.
