When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic categories - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate multiple customers and thus the resources per account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to carry out everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing website, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You acquire root privileges and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most web hosting service providers, incl. us at Tomserver.com, offer several hardware configurations you can choose from in line with your needs. The configurations offer different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a web hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you want to use the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give root access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software that we provide does not give you complete root-level access and is mostly suitable for somebody who has plenty of sites that swallow a lot of resources, but would like to manage the websites, databases and mailbox aliases using an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant root-level access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the server only 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 predicament with your dedicated server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Tomserver.com 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 an extra option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something by accident.
