When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 main varieties - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared servers host numerous clients and thus the resources per account are restricted, virtual private server accounts give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you like without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your company has a heavy-content web page, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root-level access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting distributors, including us at HostPapaya, offer several hardware configurations you can pick from depending on your requirements. The hardware configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell console only. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give full root-level access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not offer root privileges and is chiefly suitable for somebody who maintains numerous web sites that devour lots of resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and email accounts through an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at HostPapaya the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two hard drives as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root access erases something by accident.
