Dedicated Servers Description

When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers accommodate a lot of clients and hence the system resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans offer more configuration independence, but also affect other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to do everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a regularly visited site, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the right option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a problem. You obtain full root access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware specs

Most shared hosting distributors, including us at MANETD PLUS SARL, provide different hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your needs. The hardware configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is handy software if you would like to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software pre-activated is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting CP interface that we offer does not include complete root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs plenty of web pages that require plenty of resources, but prefers to administer the web pages, databases and mailbox accounts via a user-friendly hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated hosting web server only 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 case of a predicament with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at MANETD PLUS SARL 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 server too. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to have the very same data on 2 server hard disks as a precaution in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something unintentionally.
