When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 major varieties - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate many clients and thus the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you like without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a resource-absorbing online portal, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You receive root-level access and can utilize 100% of the server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most web hosting service providers, including us at DuoServers.ORG, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from based on your needs. The hardware architectures include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer complete root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains many web pages that require lots of system resources, but would rather administer the web sites, databases and e-mailbox accounts via an intuitive web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the web server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at DuoServers.ORG the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
