When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared servers host lots of clients and thus the system resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to do everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are normally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a resource-absorbing web page, or just has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You obtain root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting distributors, including us at TALOSWEB, offer several hardware configurations you can pick from on the basis of your demands. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH console for all the modifications 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-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you want to grant full server root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we provide does not give you root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who owns multiple sites that consume lots of resources, but wants to manage the web portals, databases and e-mailboxes via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only 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 hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at TALOSWEB the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting 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 very same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something by accident.
