When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main kinds - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate multiple clients and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private servers offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to do everything you like without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a busy website, or simply has very exact server setup requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not an issue. You gain full root-level access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and meddling with your web portals.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting distributors, including us at Italy Raidlayer, provide several hardware configurations you can select from based on your demands. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell connection only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give full root privileges to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we offer does not include full root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who owns numerous web portals that demand a lot of system resources, but prefers to administer the web portals, databases and emails via an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose 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 web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Italy Raidlayer the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something by accident.
