Description of Dedicated Servers Hosting

When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host numerous customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the independence to carry out everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-swallowing website, or simply has very exact server setup requirements, the most logical choice is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You acquire full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting suppliers, including us at Althanium MM, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from in line with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a useful GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated hosting servers through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not offer root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who has many websites that swallow plenty of system resources, but would like to administer the online portals, databases and e-mailboxes via an intuitive hosting CP. 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 intend to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Althanium MM the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
