Definition of Dedicated Hosting

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate a lot of clients and so the system resources per user account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the option to do everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a heavy-traffic web portal, or simply has very precise web server setup requirements, the most appropriate choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You are given root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting service providers, including us at My Biz Mobi Host, provide different hardware architectures you can select from in accordance with your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can select a hosting CP, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to use the hosting server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give full root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we offer does not include root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has multiple online portals that require plenty of system resources, but wishes to manage the web portals, databases and email addresses through an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of using the server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at My Biz Mobi Host the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two hard disks as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges deletes something by mistake.
