When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal varieties - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers accommodate lots of clients and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, VPS plans offer more server configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to do everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a popular website, or simply has very precise server configuration requirements, the most logical choice is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You obtain full root access and can utilize 100% of the physical server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of hosting firms, including us at Terabit, offer several hardware architectures you can select from in line with your requirements. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to utilize the web server for website hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant complete root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software installed is a good idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP interface that we offer does not give you complete root access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who has lots of web portals that devour plenty of resources, but prefers to manage the online portals, databases and e-mailboxes through an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Terabit the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on two server disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full server root access deletes something unintentionally.
