When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three major sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate lots of clients and so the resources per account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more configuration independence, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to carry out everything you wish without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content online portal, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You get full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your websites.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting corporations, including us at Vinca Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from on the basis of your necessities. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH terminal exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to grant complete root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we offer does not offer root-level access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who runs lots of online portals that demand lots of system resources, but would rather manage the web pages, databases and mail aliases through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Vinca Hosting 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 as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something unintentionally.
