When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main categories - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate numerous clients and therefore the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you prefer without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a resource-requiring website, or just has very specific web server architecture requirements, the most suitable choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You acquire full server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting corporations, incl. us at Host Cape, provide different hardware configurations you can select from based on your necessities. The hardware architectures include different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is handy software if you would like to utilize the server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant full server root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not include complete root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who runs many online portals that swallow a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the web portals, databases and email boxes through an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Host Cape 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 a bonus feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on 2 disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something by mistake.
