Dedicated Plans Unveiled
When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host a lot of clients and thus the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS plans give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the independence to perform everything you desire without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a resource-intensive web page, or simply has very explicit server setup requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You acquire root-level access and can utilize 100% of the web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web portals.
The majority of hosting service providers, including us at Hepsia.Co, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from as per your requirements. The hardware configurations include different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you wish to utilize the web hosting server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choice
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting 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 awkward, especially if you choose to give access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not include root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who owns a lot of websites that demand a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the web portals, databases and mail accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Hepsia.Co 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 too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access deletes something accidentally.
