When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 major varieties - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers host plenty of customers and therefore the system resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the freedom to do everything you like without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a heavy-content web portal, or simply has very special web server configuration requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You acquire full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the physical server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting firms, including us at funhostr, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from as per your demands. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give full server root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that we offer does not include complete root access and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains lots of sites that consume a lot of resources, but would rather administer the web sites, databases and email addresses using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers 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 hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at funhostr 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 as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
