Definition of Dedicated Hosting
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three major sorts - web hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated hosting. Shared hosting web servers accommodate numerous customers and so the resources per user account are restricted, VPS hosting offer more configuration liberty, but also affect other virtual private web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated hosting servers give you the chance to do everything you wish without messing with anyone else.

Dedicated hosting servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or VPS hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your corporation has a busy website, or simply has very special server architecture requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not a problem. You acquire full server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your web sites.
Most website hosting firms, incl. us at LiteSpeed Cloud Hosting, provide different hardware configurations you can pick from in line with your requirements. The hardware architectures include different varieties of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk sizes and different monthly bandwidth usage quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a convenient GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the changes you will be making. We provide three kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The web hosting CP of your choice
If you are a self-confident Linux user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated hosting servers through a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to grant access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel GUI that we offer does not offer complete root access and is mainly suitable for somebody who has multiple web pages that swallow lots of resources, but would like to administer the websites, databases and mails via a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant full root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the dedicated hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.
Server monitoring and backup procedures
Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated hosting servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated server, such as an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at LiteSpeed Cloud Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated hosting servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated hosting servers as well. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to have the same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted full root privileges deletes something by accident.
