Dedicated Servers Description

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate numerous customers and so the resources per user account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration independence, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the chance to perform everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-absorbing online portal, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You gain full root access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting companies, incl. us at nukah, offer different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you wish to use the server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant full server root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not include full root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who has lots of web pages that consume plenty of system resources, but desires to administer the web sites, databases and e-mail boxes through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at nukah 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 server too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root privileges erases something accidentally.
