Dedicated Packages Explanation

When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 principal kinds - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated packages. Shared web servers host numerous customers and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you prefer without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a content-heavy site, or simply has very explicit server setup requirements, the smartest option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You acquire complete server root access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting firms, including us at Efficientia Servers, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated packages via a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you decide to grant full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we provide does not give you root privileges and is mainly suitable for someone who has multiple web portals that demand plenty of system resources, but would like to administer the web pages, databases and email mailboxes using an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Efficientia Servers 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 too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something by accident.
