When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic types - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host multiple customers and so the system resources per account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you see fit without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your company has a heavy resource-swallowing site, or just has very specific web server architecture requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are granted full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting suppliers, incl. us at Lifenethost, provide different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is useful software if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated web hosting via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to grant root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we provide does not offer complete root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who has plenty of web pages that demand plenty of system resources, but would like to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail addresses through an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root-level access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Lifenethost 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 too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something by accident.
