Dedicated Packages Explained

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three major varieties - hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated packages. Shared servers accommodate numerous clients and so the system resources per account are limited, VPS offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the independence to do everything you wish without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy-traffic web site, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You obtain full server root privileges and can use 100% of the physical server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting distributors, including us at LivHanA- hosting, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your needs. The hardware architectures include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a useful tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH console only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we offer does not include complete root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who has many online portals that devour lots of resources, but prefers to administer the web portals, databases and mail accounts using an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at LivHanA- hosting 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 servers as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
