When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 main categories - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting servers host a lot of customers and hence the resources per web hosting account are restricted, VPS hosting give you more server configuration liberty, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the possibility to carry out everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content web portal, or just has very specific server configuration requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a concern. You have root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and intervening with your web pages.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting suppliers, incl. us at Interlink Systems, provide several hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your demands. The configurations include different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated hosting via an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant root-level access to someone else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not give you full root access and is mainly suitable for someone who maintains plenty of sites that consume a lot of resources, but would rather manage the sites, databases and mails through a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting servers only 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 hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Interlink Systems the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
