When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared web hosting servers accommodate numerous clients and so the system resources per account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated hosting servers offer you the chance to carry out everything you think fit without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting servers?

Dedicated hosting servers are usually much more high-priced than shared servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a frequently visited web page, or just has very specific server architecture requirements, the proper option is a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You obtain complete server root access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware architectures

The majority of web hosting vendors, incl. us at Xgen Hosting, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from based on your demands. The hardware architectures include different varieties of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is useful software if you want to use the dedicated hosting servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide three types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting through an SSH terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to grant full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel user interface that we provide does not include complete root access and is mostly appropriate for somebody who runs numerous online portals that absorb plenty of system resources, but wishes to manage the web sites, databases and email box accounts through a user-friendly web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Xgen Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on 2 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges deletes something by accident.
