When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 major kinds - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host multiple customers and so the system resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the independence to carry out everything you wish without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-requiring web portal, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are given full server root access and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of web hosting firms, incl. us at hostleonard, provide different hardware architectures you can pick from depending on your needs. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a hosting CP, which is a convenient software tool if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting server for web hosting purposes only and choose not to use an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We offer three types of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server via an SSH connection exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a smart idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software tool that we offer does not give you full root privileges and is mostly suitable for somebody who maintains lots of websites that consume lots of system resources, but wishes to manage the web sites, databases and mailbox accounts through a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you root access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts rather than utilizing the web server only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In the event of a predicament with your dedicated hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at hostleonard the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting solutions provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access deletes something by accident.
