What is Dedicated Hosting?

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate multiple clients and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private servers offer more configuration independence, but also affect other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to carry out everything you want without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your corporation has a popular site, or simply has very exact server architecture requirements, the right option is a dedicated servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You are bestowed with full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting vendors, incl. us at EUROLATINAMERICAhost, offer several hardware architectures you can pick from according to your needs. The hardware architectures include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a handy user interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH tunnel only. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel user interface that we provide does not give you full server root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns plenty of online portals that devour plenty of system resources, but would like to administer the web sites, databases and mail accounts through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at EUROLATINAMERICAhost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to store the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something accidentally.
