Explanation of Dedicated Hosting

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host a lot of customers and so the system resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the possibility to perform everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more expensive than shared servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a frequently visited web site, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the most reasonable choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are bestowed with full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of hosting service providers, incl. us at GoBobby.co, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give root privileges to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a splendid idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not include full server root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who has lots of web portals that require plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the online portals, databases and emails using an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at GoBobby.co the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root privileges erases something unintentionally.
