Dedicated Hosting Revealed
When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 major sorts - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate many clients and therefore the system resources per account are restricted, VPS plans offer more configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to do everything you want without meddling with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a frequently visited web page, or simply has very exact server setup requirements, the right option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You acquire full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your online portals.
Most hosting service providers, including us at Nissi Hosting, offer several hardware architectures you can select from according to your requirements. The hardware configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful software tool if you want to use the server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-confident Linux user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting CP tool that we offer does not include full root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who maintains numerous websites that swallow a lot of resources, but prefers to manage the web sites, databases and email addresses using a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root privileges and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the web hosting server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup services
Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Nissi Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two hard drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access erases something accidentally.
