When we talk about hosting servers, there are three basic types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web servers accommodate multiple customers and thus the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you see fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a high resource-consuming website, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the best option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting firms, including us at HostMe4Life, offer several hardware configurations you can pick from in consonance with your needs. The hardware architectures include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting through an SSH tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we provide does not include root-level access and is mostly suitable for somebody who runs a lot of web sites that consume a lot of system resources, but wishes to administer the online portals, databases and electronic mails through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than using 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 matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at HostMe4Life 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 as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete server root access deletes something by mistake.
