When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host a lot of customers and hence the system resources per account are limited, virtual private servers give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you wish without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a popular web portal, or simply has very exact web server setup requirements, the most sensible choice is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You have full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting distributors, incl. us at Emerald Gold Hosting, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from in accordance with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we provide does not give you complete server root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who runs multiple sites that require lots of system resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and mails via a user-friendly web hosting CP. 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 plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Emerald Gold 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 hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root access erases something by accident.
