When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three principal sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (Virtual Private Servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate many customers and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS accounts give you more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is quite simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited site, or simply has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You obtain root privileges and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting suppliers, incl. us at Golden Delta, offer several different hardware architectures you can choose from according to your requirements. The hardware architectures include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is useful software if you wish to use the dedicated web hosting server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you want to give complete root-level access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a nice idea. The Hepsia hosting CP user interface that we provide does not give you root privileges and is mainly appropriate for someone who maintains many web pages that devour lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the sites, databases and mail accounts through an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than utilizing the web server only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Golden Delta 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 server as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something by accident.
