When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of customers and hence the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS accounts give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the liberty to carry out everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a popular website, or just has very special server configuration requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You obtain complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting service providers, incl. us at Republik Murah, offer several different hardware configurations you can choose from on the basis of your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you would like to utilize the web 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 three sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH console only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you want to give full server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not give you full root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who owns lots of web sites that consume plenty of system resources, but wants to administer the websites, databases and mail accounts through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting plans rather than using the dedicated web hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform activated. Here at Republik Murah the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access erases something by accident.
