When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 basic types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers host multiple clients and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to perform everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a heavy-traffic online portal, or just has very explicit server configuration requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You get root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting providers, incl. us at Wantok Web Hosting, provide several hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your necessities. The hardware configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy GUI if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you choose to grant complete root-level access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not include root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains numerous web portals that absorb a lot of resources, but wishes to manage the websites, databases and mails via an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Wantok Web 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 web hosting server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 hard disks as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something by accident.
