When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three main categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host numerous customers and hence the resources per account are limited, VPS hosting give you more server configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated hosting servers give you the opportunity to do everything you prefer without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more expensive than shared servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a high resource-swallowing online portal, or simply has very explicit web server setup requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You acquire complete root-level access and can use 100 percent of the web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your online portals.

Hardware architectures

Most hosting service providers, incl. us at XOOMSERVERS.NET, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in line with your needs. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to grant full server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer complete root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has lots of web sites that consume lots of resources, but desires to manage the web sites, databases and e-mailboxes using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at XOOMSERVERS.NET the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the very same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by accident.
