When we talk about hosting servers, there are three basic sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared hosting servers host multiple customers and hence the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other VPS web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers give you the possibility to perform everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy-traffic web site, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is inclined to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are bestowed with complete root-level access and can use 100% of the server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting vendors, incl. us at NutmegHost, offer several different hardware architectures you can pick from on the basis of your necessities. The configurations include different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server web hosting through a Secure Shell connection exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you want to grant root-level access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP software tool that we offer does not offer complete root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains numerous web pages that devour plenty of resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and e-mail box accounts through a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at NutmegHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to save the very same data on 2 hard disks as a protective measure in case of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given access deletes something by accident.
