What is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three basic categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of customers and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private servers offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to do everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting servers or VPS web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your firm has a heavy-traffic web page, or simply has very specific server configuration requirements, the most suitable choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are bestowed with full server root privileges and can use 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at Nom Savior, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your needs. The configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to grant complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not give you full server root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs a lot of web portals that consume plenty of resources, but wants to administer the online portals, databases and electronic mails via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web 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 predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Nom Savior the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something by accident.
