When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 basic types - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers host plenty of customers and hence the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a resource-demanding website, or simply has very special web server configuration requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You are given complete root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at UNLI CLOUD, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your demands. The configurations offer different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is handy software if you would like to utilize the hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you want to give root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not give you root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who runs numerous websites that absorb a lot of system resources, but prefers to administer the web pages, databases and electronic mail addresses through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting web server 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at UNLI CLOUD 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 a bonus feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something accidentally.
