When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major categories - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host a lot of clients and thus the system resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the chance to perform everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a data-heavy web site, or just has very precise web server setup requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You obtain full server root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting corporations, including us at East Texas Web Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can choose from in keeping with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you would like to use the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting 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 Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you wish to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is an excellent idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we provide does not offer complete server root access and is mostly suitable for someone who runs numerous web portals that devour a lot of system resources, but wishes to manage the online portals, databases and email mailboxes using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the web server just 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 server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at East Texas Web Hosting 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 too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on two server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by accident.
