When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three main categories - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of clients and hence the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very precise web server configuration requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You receive complete server root access and can use 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting firms, incl. us at OnionHost, provide different hardware architectures you can select from in line with your requirements. The configurations offer different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a handy tool if you wish to utilize the server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia hosting CP user interface that we provide does not include full root privileges and is chiefly suitable for someone who has numerous online portals that devour lots of system resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and email boxes via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated web hosting server just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at OnionHost 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 web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access deletes something by accident.
