When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three principal categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers host plenty of customers and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private servers offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to carry out everything you want without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are normally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a big online portal, or just has very special server architecture requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You get full root privileges and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of hosting firms, incl. us at 6xCloud, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from in consonance with your demands. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different traffic quotas. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to SSH for all the changes you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers via an SSH terminal only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to grant root privileges to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we provide does not give you full server root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who has lots of online portals that demand a lot of resources, but wishes to administer the web pages, databases and email accounts through an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at 6xCloud the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an extra feature - the web hosting supplier offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something by accident.
