Dedicated Plans Description
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three basic kinds - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate plenty of customers and therefore the resources per account are restricted, VPS offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a heavy-content web portal, or just has very special web server architecture requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You gain root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your sites.
Most website hosting vendors, including us at Steele Design Studio limited, offer several hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your needs. The hardware architectures offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy graphical user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your choice
If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we offer does not offer full server root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who maintains plenty of web portals that absorb a lot of system resources, but desires to manage the web sites, databases and e-mails using an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Steele Design Studio limited 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 servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something by mistake.
