When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 basic varieties - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of customers and hence the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the option to do everything you decide without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a high resource-devouring web site, or just has very precise web server setup requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You gain full root privileges and can utilize 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

The majority of shared hosting distributors, incl. us at Webpaz, provide several hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via SSH exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to grant full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a nice idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we provide does not offer full server root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who owns plenty of online portals that swallow plenty of resources, but prefers to administer the web sites, databases and e-mail boxes using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root privileges and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Webpaz 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 hosting server too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access deletes something by mistake.
