Dedicated Hosting Disclosed

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main categories - hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate numerous customers and hence the resources per user account are restricted, VPS offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a large-scale web site, or just has very explicit server configuration requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You are granted full server root privileges and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting suppliers, including us at Gose Internet Services (GIS), offer several different hardware architectures you can select from according to your demands. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is handy software if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not give you full server root access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns numerous web pages that swallow a lot of resources, but wants to manage the web sites, databases and e-mail accounts using an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Gose Internet Services (GIS) 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 servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access erases something accidentally.
