A dedicated server is "an enterprise-grade physical server used to host the applications and services of a single hosting client". Dedicated servers are typically used to host high-traffic websites, web applications, and for other hosting scenarios where performance is paramount
How it Works
Dedicated web hosting is what happens when a hosting service provider leases you a dedicated server. The server is custom-configured to your application, which could be a website, a private cloud, a database, streaming, VOIP, gaming, web hosting, or some other business need.
Dedicated servers use the technology that is available to have your server. No one else is using your server at the same time you are so you are getting the fastest speed, highest memory, and other aspects that the server is capable of. You get to manage your server box through a dedicated hardware system that is provided by a hosting server. This server can be used for a business or organization or an individual who prefers to have a dedicated server.
A dedicated server is a remote server that is entirely dedicated to one setup and an individual remote computer. It is all managed in the cloud or with an MSP (managed service provider).
1. Operating system choices
One of the factors in choosing a dedicated hosting solution is the freedom to have your own choice of operating system. The applications you need for your business may require a specific type of operating system, such as a Windows Server OS or one of the different Linux distributions. In some circumstances, the software you run may only be compatible with a legacy OS version. Make sure that the provider you go with enables you to run the OS you need.
2. Server configuration
It’s not just the choice of operating system that is important. Another key requirement is the ability to have total control over your server so that you can configure it to meet your needs. You may, for example, need full root SSH / RDP root access.
3. Hardware choices
As dedicated servers can be expensive, always look for a hosting provider that offers plenty of hardware options. This way, you get a hardware setup that has the capacity and performance capabilities you require, without having to pay for something that is far more powerful than you need.
Ideally, you should have a range of options over the CPU model, number of cores and speed, the size of RAM, the type of RAM (e.g., DDR3 or DDR4), hard disk capacity, hard disk type (HDD or SSD), bandwidth and RAID.
4. Control panel options
Great control panels make it much easier to manage your server and the applications which you run on it. While vanilla control panels may be sufficient for some companies’ needs, many benefit from using cPanel & WHM (for Linux servers only) or Plesk (now for both Windows and Linux servers).
Easy to navigate and with a wide range of incredibly powerful, built-in management tools, cPanel and Plesk are industry leading control panels used by millions of businesses across the globe.
If your server is hacked, your IT operations could be taken offline and your company put at a standstill. If there is a data breach, there’s also the risk of huge fines, reputation damage and customer legal action. This is why 60% of hacked companies go out of business within 6 months.
With this in mind, security should be a decisive factor when choosing a dedicated hosting provider. You should consider everything from the location and physical security of the data centre to the range of security features your host provides as part of your package and as additional services.
You should look for next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention, web app security, DDoS protection, and malware and virus prevention. In addition, they should also provide SSL certificates, dedicated IP addresses and spam filtering.
6. Server management
Outsourcing server management to your service provider not only makes things easier; it could also save you significantly in the long run. This service will include such things as OS updates, patching, application installation and server monitoring. Server monitoring constantly checks the health of your server and its performance to ensure it remains in top condition.
7. High availability
If your server runs critical applications, you cannot afford for it to go offline. The consequences could be disastrous. This is why it is essential that you choose a host that can guarantee high availability – i.e., that your server will stay online for 99.95% of the time or higher. This is because our N+1 data centre model means we have a redundant backup of everything waiting to take over if a failure happens.
8. First class technical support
There may be times when your IT team needs your service provider’s technical support to carry out a task or to troubleshoot an issue. This support should be an inclusive part of your contract with the provider and, very importantly, be available 24/7 by phone, email, live chat or ticket. After all, if your dedicated server goes offline on Friday night, you don’t want to wait until Monday before it gets fixed.
Technical support differs entirely from customer support. By technical, we mean having a specialist IT team available that can provide solutions at the point of contact. They will have the necessary expertise and be actively able to deal with any problem.
Aside from person to person assistance, a good hosting provider will also publish a range of helpful online resources for their customers, such as knowledge bases, tutorials, technical forums and ‘how-to’ blog posts
All the Plans include
- Complete Root Level Access of the server to the user to manage files and folders.
- Firewall, spam & antivirus for data to ensure complete data security.
- 99.9% uptime for the server hence reducing bandwidth.
- 24 X 7 Phone Support. Our Technical Representatives are available for you all the time.
- 100 Mbps bandwidth. Using SharePoint Backup Plugin server uploads only the data which is changed or updated while incremental backups and hence saving the bandwidth.
- File/Folder level restoration. Cloud Box 99 allows you to restore a single file if needed at a single click process.
- Disaster Recovery Option. If network gets disconnected or power goes off no worries at all. Cloud Box 99 allows you to resume your backup process.
A special network operating system (NOS) software on each client computer and server connected to the network to provide the services necessary for them to communicate.
