How Dedicated Hosting Functions

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host a lot of clients and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, VPS packages give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a high resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You receive complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting service providers, including us at NTyT, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from in keeping with your demands. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a useful GUI if you want to utilize the web hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to give root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not give you full root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who has a lot of online portals that devour plenty of system resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and email mailboxes via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and offer 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the web hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at NTyT 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 server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root access erases something by mistake.
