Dedicated Hosting Plans Explanation

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three main types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers host plenty of customers and hence the system resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the opportunity to perform everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a high resource-devouring site, or just has very precise web server architecture requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not a concern. You are bestowed with full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting distributors, incl. us at Zoutsos Web Hosting and DNS, offer different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting via an SSH connection only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who owns many web portals that swallow plenty of system resources, but wishes to administer the web pages, databases and mail aliases via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Zoutsos Web Hosting and DNS the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access deletes something unintentionally.
