How Dedicated Servers Function

When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major types - shared hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting web servers host a lot of clients and hence the resources per hosting account are restricted, virtual private servers offer more server configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the possibility to do everything you see fit without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are usually much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is rather simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-consuming web portal, or simply has very special server configuration requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You acquire full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web sites.

Hardware specs

The majority of web hosting vendors, including us at Mujica Hosting, provide several different hardware configurations you can choose from as per your necessities. The configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a web hosting Control Panel, which is a handy user interface if you want to use the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes solely and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of 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 dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH connection exclusively. That, however, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to give full server root access to someone else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting CP GUI that we provide does not offer full root-level access and is chiefly suitable for someone who owns multiple sites that require lots of system resources, but wants to administer the web sites, databases and e-mailboxes through an easy-to-use web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you full server root privileges and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages instead of using the dedicated servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web hosting server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a network outage, it is advisable to have some kind of monitoring platform 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 separate services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also a bonus feature - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to store the same data on two hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given root privileges erases something by mistake.
