When we speak of hosting servers, there are 3 main categories - shared hosting web servers, VPS (virtual private hosting servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared servers accommodate multiple customers and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server accounts offer more configuration independence, but also influence other VPS servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you think fit without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web servers or VPS servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The reply is very simple. If your company has a heavy-traffic web portal, or just has very special server setup requirements, the wisest choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You get complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of shared hosting corporations, including us at FoxWebTools, provide different hardware configurations you can select from in line with your necessities. The hardware architectures include different types of microprocessors, a different number of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient tool if you wish to use the web hosting server for hosting purposes only and choose not to resort to a Secure Shell client for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you choose to give full root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting CP graphical user interface that we provide does not give you root privileges and is chiefly appropriate for someone who owns lots of web portals that devour lots of system resources, but prefers to manage the web pages, databases and e-mail boxes through a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant complete root access and include 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated hosting web server just 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 hosting server and of backing it up. In case of a predicament with your dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is advisable to have some sort of monitoring platform activated. Here at FoxWebTools 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 hosting server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting vendor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could select a type of RAID that would permit you to save the same data on two server hard disks as a protective measure in case of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access erases something unintentionally.
