When we speak of hosting web servers, there are three major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate a lot of customers and therefore the resources per user account are limited, virtual private servers give you more server configuration independence, but also influence other virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to carry out everything you see fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a heavy resource-requiring site, or simply has very precise web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a concern. You are bestowed with full root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of website hosting corporations, incl. us at Magnolia Sweets Web Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from in keeping with your necessities. The configurations include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through a Secure Shell client only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant full root privileges to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we offer does not include root privileges and is mainly suitable for somebody who runs numerous online portals that absorb plenty of system resources, but prefers to manage the online portals, databases and mailboxes through an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you complete server root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting plans instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at Magnolia Sweets Web 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 servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to have the very same data on 2 server disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root access deletes something by mistake.
