Dedicated Server Packages Definition

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host plenty of clients and thus the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a heavy-traffic web site, or just has very exact web server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is not a concern. You are granted root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of shared hosting vendors, incl. us at Sankia Tech, provide different hardware configurations you can select from in keeping with your demands. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you wish to use the dedicated hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to give access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not include complete root-level access and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns a lot of web portals that swallow a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the sites, databases and email box accounts via a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting server just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Sankia Tech 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 server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by mistake.
