Dedicated Packages Unveiled
When we talk about hosting web servers, there are three principal types - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host many clients and thus the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS plans offer more configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the option to perform everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a high resource-absorbing web portal, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the best choice is a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You gain full server root privileges and can use 100% of the web hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and meddling with your websites.
The majority of hosting suppliers, including us at DMZ Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can select from based on your requirements. The hardware architectures include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a useful software tool if you wish to utilize the dedicated web server for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your preference
If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH tunnel only. That, however, could be inconvenient, especially if you want to give root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software installed is an intelligent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel software tool that we offer does not include full root access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who owns numerous web pages that consume plenty of resources, but prefers to administer the web pages, databases and mails through an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell web hosting accounts rather than using the hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.
Web 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 web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at DMZ Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on two hard drives as a protective measure in case of a server hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something accidentally.
