When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three main sorts - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate multiple customers and so the resources per user account are limited, VPS accounts offer more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to do everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are typically much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is rather simple. If your corporation has a resource-swallowing web portal, or simply has very exact server setup requirements, the most sensible option is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You have root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the physical server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and meddling with your web pages.

Hardware specifications

Most hosting corporations, including us at ChappNet, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from in consonance with your needs. The configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated web server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give full server root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having hosting CP software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not offer complete root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who owns multiple online portals that demand plenty of resources, but wants to administer the web portals, databases and mailboxes through an intuitive hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full root privileges and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans rather than utilizing the dedicated hosting web server only for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at ChappNet 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 server too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access erases something accidentally.
