How Dedicated Servers Operate

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal categories - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host a lot of customers and so the system resources per account are restricted, VPS give you more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to perform everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You have complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting distributors, including us at Maxima Host, offer several hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH console only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to grant access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we offer does not include root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains many web pages that consume plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the online portals, databases and email mailboxes through an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers solely 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 servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Maxima Host 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 feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by accident.
