When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main sorts - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers host a lot of customers and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS web hosting give you more configuration freedom, but also affect other private virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the liberty to carry out everything you please without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or private virtual web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy-content online portal, or just has very precise server setup requirements, the most logical option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not an issue. You receive root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your websites.

Hardware configurations

The majority of web hosting vendors, incl. us at Gryphon Digital, provide several different hardware architectures you can choose from in accordance with your demands. The configurations include different kinds of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM memory and hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can choose a hosting Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you wish to utilize the dedicated web hosting servers for hosting purposes only and choose not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your preference

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated web hosting via a Secure Shell terminal only. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you choose to grant complete root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you full server root access and is chiefly suitable for somebody who runs many websites that consume plenty of system resources, but prefers to administer the sites, databases and mails through a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting CPs, on the other hand, give you complete root access and have 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated web hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some kind of monitoring system enabled. Here at Gryphon Digital the system administrators monitor all dedicated web hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated web hosting servers as well. Backups are also a bonus option - the hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete root-level access erases something unintentionally.
