When we speak of hosting servers, there are three major sorts - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host plenty of clients and therefore the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the autonomy to perform everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a large web site, or simply has very exact server configuration requirements, the best option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete root access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of website hosting providers, including us at Sequerah, offer several hardware configurations you can select from on the basis of your demands. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated servers via an SSH terminal exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you wish to grant complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software installed is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not offer full root privileges and is mostly suitable for somebody who has a lot of web sites that swallow lots of system resources, but desires to manage the online portals, databases and e-mail addresses using an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at Sequerah 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 servers too. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root-level access erases something by accident.
