When we talk about hosting web servers, there are 3 main kinds - web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host plenty of customers and hence the resources per user account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if used imprudently, and dedicated servers give you the liberty to do everything you desire without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a busy web page, or simply has very specific server configuration requirements, the right choice is a dedicated servers. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You receive complete root access and can utilize 100% of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and messing with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

The majority of website hosting companies, including us at Isolex Business Technologies, provide several different hardware configurations you can pick from according to your necessities. The configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth usage quotas. You can choose a web hosting CP, which is a useful user interface if you would like to utilize the dedicated servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting via an SSH console exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you want to give root privileges to someone else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software installed is a bright idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software that we offer does not give you complete root-level access and is chiefly appropriate for someone who owns a lot of web pages that require a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the web pages, databases and mailboxes via an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of utilizing the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should select 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 dedicated hosting web server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Isolex Business Technologies 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 as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could choose a kind of RAID that would permit you to keep the very same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something unintentionally.
