When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 main varieties - hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated packages. Shared servers accommodate a lot of clients and thus the system resources per account are limited, VPS give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you wish without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a busy website, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You obtain full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting distributors, including us at Ritsam Hosts, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from in keeping with your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated packages through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you decide to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we offer does not offer root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has plenty of web portals that swallow a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the sites, databases and e-mail box accounts using a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

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 server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Ritsam Hosts 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full root-level access erases something by accident.
