What Does Dedicated Hosting Stand for?
When we talk about hosting servers, there are 3 principal types - hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web hosting servers host a lot of customers and hence the resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS give you more configuration liberty, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the option to perform everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Dedicated servers are commonly much more high-priced than shared hosting web servers or virtual private web hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a repeatedly visited web page, or just has very exact web server setup requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated servers. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You get full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the hosting server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and meddling with your sites.
The majority of web hosting suppliers, including us at MTBN.NET, provide several hardware configurations you can pick from as per your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a handy graphical user interface if you want to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes only and choose not to use SSH for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The Control Panel of your choosing
If you are a self-assured Linux user (our dedicated hosting servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated servers through an SSH tunnel only. That, though, could be awkward, even more so if you choose to give complete root access to somebody else who has less technical knowledge than yourself. This is why having hosting Control Panel software installed is a clever idea. The Hepsia Control Panel GUI that we offer does not give you full root privileges and is mostly suitable for someone who owns numerous web pages that swallow a lot of resources, but desires to administer the websites, databases and e-mail accounts via an easy-to-use hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and include three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the dedicated servers only for yourself, you should choose one of these two.
Web server monitoring and backup procedures
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 dedicated hosting web server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is useful to have some sort of monitoring system activated. Here at MTBN.NET the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated servers too. Backups are also an additional option - the hosting services provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could choose a type of RAID that would permit you to have the same data on 2 hard drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted complete server root access erases something by mistake.
