When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic types - hosting servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host a lot of customers and hence the system resources per account are limited, VPS give you more server configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the option to perform everything you think fit without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your company has a content-heavy website, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You receive root access and can use 100% of the server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your websites.

Hardware specifications

Most website hosting corporations, incl. us at NNUK.net, provide several hardware configurations you can pick from on the basis of your needs. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you decide to give complete root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-installed is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we provide does not include complete root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for somebody who has multiple online portals that consume plenty of system resources, but wishes to manage the web portals, databases and mail aliases through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages rather than using the dedicated servers just 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 the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at NNUK.net 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 servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting supplier 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 2 server hard disks as a protective measure in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted access erases something by accident.
