When we speak of hosting servers, there are three major categories - web hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of clients and therefore the system resources per user account are limited, VPS hosting give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers give you the liberty to perform everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or private virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a large web portal, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the proper choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You have complete root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting corporations, incl. us at MnMWebs, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from according to your necessities. The configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you would like to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose 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 Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated hosting through a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, however, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to grant complete root-level access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not include full root-level access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who owns multiple web pages that consume plenty of system resources, but would rather administer the online portals, databases and e-mail addresses via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at MnMWebs the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access deletes something by accident.
