How Dedicated Hosting Functions

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 basic kinds - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate plenty of clients and hence the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS plans give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other private virtual servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the option to do everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-requiring web page, or just has very special server architecture requirements, the most reasonable choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You receive full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting corporations, incl. us at Billixx LLC, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from as per your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can select a Control Panel, which is a handy software tool if you wish to use the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to grant full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not include complete server root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who maintains multiple web sites that require lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the web portals, databases and emails through an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of using the web server 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 server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Billixx LLC 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 server as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access deletes something by accident.
