Definition of Dedicated Server Plans

When we speak of hosting web servers, there are 3 basic types - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared servers host numerous clients and hence the system resources per user account are restricted, virtual private server packages give you more configuration liberty, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers offer you the freedom to perform everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a resource-consuming site, or just has very special web server setup requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You have complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and interfering with your web sites.

Hardware architectures

The majority of shared hosting companies, including us at Mujica Hosting, offer different hardware architectures you can select from in keeping with your requirements. The configurations offer different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can select a web hosting Control Panel, which is convenient software if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting web server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 types of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you decide to grant complete root access to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a brilliant idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not give you full server root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who maintains numerous web portals that devour lots of resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and email boxes via an easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and offer three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated web hosting server solely for yourself, you should pick 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 server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring system activated. Here at Mujica 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the web hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on two server hard disks as a precaution in case of a server hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something by mistake.
