How Does Dedicated Hosting Function?
When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three major kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host a lot of clients and thus the resources per account are restricted, virtual private servers give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to carry out everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring web portal, or just has very specific web server configuration requirements, the best option would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are granted complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and meddling with your websites.
The majority of web hosting vendors, including us at nukah, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware architectures offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful software tool if you want to use the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choosing
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to grant full root-level access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we offer does not give you full server root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who owns lots of web portals that devour a lot of system resources, but would rather manage the web sites, databases and e-mail accounts through an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at nukah the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access erases something by mistake.
