When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three basic categories - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host numerous customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual private hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited web site, or just has very exact server setup requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a problem. You are given full server root access and can use 100% of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting service providers, incl. us at iDenver Hosting, offer different hardware configurations you can select from in accordance with your demands. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who runs numerous web sites that absorb lots of system resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and email mailboxes using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at iDenver Hosting 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 an additional option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two disk drives as a precaution in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something accidentally.
