How Dedicated Web Hosting Functions

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three main kinds - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting servers. Shared hosting web servers accommodate lots of clients and so the system resources per account are restricted, virtual private server plans offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other VPS hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers give you the option to carry out everything you wish without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-swallowing site, or simply has very explicit server configuration requirements, the wisest option is a dedicated server. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You have root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web pages.

Hardware specs

Most website hosting distributors, including us at Kabul Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your necessities. The configurations include different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH client exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, especially if you decide to grant root-level access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP tool that we offer does not include full root access and is mainly appropriate for somebody who maintains plenty of online portals that devour a lot of resources, but desires to manage the web pages, databases and e-mailboxes via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of utilizing the dedicated web 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 issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Kabul Hosting 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 web hosting server as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on two server disk drives as a precaution in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something unintentionally.
