Dedicated Servers Revealed

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 basic sorts - shared hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of clients and so the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to carry out everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited website, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the smartest choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are granted full root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of shared hosting companies, including us at Cachaii, offer different hardware architectures you can choose from in keeping with your necessities. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a useful GUI if you would like to utilize the hosting server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via an SSH client only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you decide to give access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include full server root privileges and is mostly appropriate for somebody who runs lots of web portals that devour a lot of resources, but would like to administer the web sites, databases and email box accounts using an intuitive hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web 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 server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Cachaii the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something by accident.
