When we talk about web hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate multiple clients and therefore the resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server accounts give you more configuration autonomy, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to perform everything you choose without intervening with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more expensive than shared web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-requiring web portal, or just has very special server setup requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are given full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting service providers, including us at RatRod Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can choose from depending on your needs. The configurations offer different varieties of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy interface if you wish to use the web hosting server for hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to an SSH client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux user (our dedicated servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you wish to give full root access to someone else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. That is why having Control Panel software activated is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP software that we offer does not give you full server root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who maintains a lot of web portals that swallow a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the web sites, databases and mail accounts using an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root-level access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans rather than using the server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at RatRod Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also an additional feature - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to save the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root-level access deletes something accidentally.
