When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host plenty of customers and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to do everything you choose without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a regularly visited online portal, or just has very special server configuration requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting service providers, incl. us at Interweb Machine, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your demands. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH terminal only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software that we provide does not offer full root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who has many online portals that require lots of resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and emails using an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose 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 the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Interweb Machine 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 servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something by mistake.
