When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host many clients and thus the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server plans give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the possibility to carry out everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a regularly visited online portal, or just has very exact web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are granted complete root-level access and can utilize 100% of the server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

Most shared hosting distributors, incl. us at FastWeb2 - Web Solutions, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from depending on your requirements. The configurations include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to utilize the hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not give you full server root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who maintains a lot of web sites that swallow a lot of resources, but wishes to administer the web sites, databases and email mailboxes through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated server just 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 server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at FastWeb2 - Web Solutions 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 server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something unintentionally.
