When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate plenty of customers and thus the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more configuration liberty, but also influence other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to perform everything you like without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or private virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your corporation has a data-heavy online portal, or simply has very special server architecture requirements, the most sensible choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You acquire root privileges and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting vendors, including us at Eastern Bytes, provide several hardware configurations you can choose from in accordance with your requirements. The configurations include different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you wish to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH console exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant full root access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we provide does not give you full server root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who runs a lot of sites that consume a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and e-mail box accounts through an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web server, like a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Eastern Bytes 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 too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a kind of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something by mistake.
