When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 major kinds - hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated packages. Shared web servers accommodate multiple customers and so the resources per hosting account are limited, VPS offer more configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the autonomy to perform everything you please without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content website, or simply has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are bestowed with root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of website hosting companies, incl. us at Openbit.biz - Web Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can pick from on the basis of your demands. The hardware configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy tool if you want to use the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated packages via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, even more so if you wish to give full root privileges to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having Control Panel software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel tool that we provide does not give you full root-level access and is mainly suitable for someone who owns lots of sites that devour lots of resources, but desires to manage the websites, databases and e-mailbox accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, grant root access and offer three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at Openbit.biz - 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 extra option - the company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on 2 server hard drives as a protective measure in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root-level access deletes something unintentionally.
