When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host numerous customers and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS plans offer more server configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you please without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a busy web portal, or just has very exact web server architecture requirements, the wisest option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You gain full root privileges and can use 100% of the web server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting companies, incl. us at iQiHost, offer several different hardware configurations you can pick from in accordance with your needs. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated server for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH terminal only. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to give root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we offer does not give you complete root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who owns many web portals that absorb a lot of resources, but would rather manage the web portals, databases and email boxes using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at iQiHost 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 server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access erases something by accident.
