What are Dedicated Hosting Servers?

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate multiple customers and so the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the independence to carry out everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is rather simple. If your company has a frequently visited web portal, or just has very special server configuration requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are granted complete root-level access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting corporations, incl. us at DASOFT TECHNOLOGIES, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from in accordance with your needs. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is convenient software if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to grant complete root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not offer complete server root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns lots of online portals that swallow a lot of resources, but desires to administer the websites, databases and electronic mail addresses through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web 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 the event of a predicament with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at DASOFT TECHNOLOGIES the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting company 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 2 disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access erases something by accident.
