When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main categories - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated packages. Shared hosting web servers host multiple clients and thus the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the opportunity to carry out everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a heavy resource-devouring online portal, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are granted root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting vendors, including us at Pixalogy Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from based on your necessities. The hardware architectures include different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated packages through a Secure Shell client only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give complete root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not give you root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who owns many web sites that absorb a lot of system resources, but prefers to manage the web portals, databases and mails via an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Pixalogy Hosting 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 servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access erases something by mistake.
