Explanation of Dedicated Hosting
When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web servers accommodate a lot of customers and thus the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to perform everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?
Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a resource-consuming online portal, or simply has very explicit server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no importance. You get full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your sites.
Most web hosting vendors, including us at SuperJUMBLO, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can choose a Control Panel, which is useful software if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to give full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not include root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains multiple web pages that demand a lot of resources, but would rather administer the web portals, databases and e-mail accounts using a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at SuperJUMBLO the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an additional option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something by accident.
