When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate many clients and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts give you more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the option to carry out everything you decide without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a popular web page, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not a concern. You are bestowed with full root access and can use 100% of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

Most shared hosting distributors, including us at MICloudWeb.com, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from according to your requirements. The hardware architectures include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not give you full root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns lots of web sites that require lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the sites, databases and mail aliases through a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at MICloudWeb.com 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access erases something by accident.
