Why choose a dedicated server?

Advantages provided by a dedicated server

Dedicated servers for resource consumers

The dedicated servers are recommended for the websites or services with high resource consumption. A dedicated server provides high calculation power, a high number of operations per second with the storage medium, high quantity of (RAM) memory and it's all at your disposal. The network port is, also, completely at your disposal.

Your server, without noisy neighbors

The shared web hosting services and virtual server hosting operate on servers where other clients are hosted, as well. In order for the hosting service providers to offer a competitive commercial solution, a certain healthy "overselling" degree is practically used. Just as it happens when it comes to mobile phone offers: if all the customers used simultaneously those packages with "unlimited" minutes, then the mobile networks would not function at all. Therefore, hosting packages with many resources can be offered, at an affordable price. There are resource sonsumption isolation and limitation software mechanisms achieved through the renters sharing the same hardware resources, but these mechanisms are not perfect. In case of a dedicated server you have the certainty that there is no neighbor with whom your web application is fighting for resources. Consequently, the dedicated servers are ideal for the projects having the necessary budget and that need a high and constant level of resources at the web application's disposal.

A dedicated server offers you freedom

The hosting solutions with a smaller price have a default set of software applications. In case of dedicated server, since there is no server neighbor you could affect in any way, you can install any software and any version, including any operating system. Then, you can opt for a control panel and you can choose the version of each software, which best suits your scenario.

Enhanced security with the dedicated servers

The shared web hosting and VPS hosting packages provide a reasonable degree of security. The shared web hosting services depend on software applications, such as: operating system (e.g. CentOS, Ubuntu), web server (Apache, Nginx, LiteSpeed), mail server (Exim, Postfix), control panel (cPanel, Plesk), FTP server (Pure-FTP, ProFTPD). The VPS hosting services depend on the operating systems (CentOS, Ubuntu) and on the virtualization technology (KVM, XEN, VMWare). These software applications can have certain security vulnerabilities through which, a client hosted on that server can access the data of another client on the same physical server. Such situations are rare, but not impossible. As such, for the highest security degree a dedicated server is recommended.

OpEx instead of CapEx

In order for you to run your websites or applications on a dedicated server, you can purchase the equipemnt or you can rent it for a monthly payment, from Hosterion.

Purchasing a physical server implies making a "Capital Expenditure", briefly "CapEx"). Such an expenditure pyas itself off in several years and it means choosing, configurating, testing the hardware and dispatching the server to a different data center. Besides the additional activities and the necessary know-how, the purchased server implies a big initial investment and the server could turn out to be inappropriate in a few months. When renting a dedicated server, your expenditure is a monthly operational expenditure (or OpEx) and it provides you flexibility without a big initial investment. Paying monthly the dedicated server rent gives you the opportunity, any month, to: make an upgrade to a superior server, to downgrade - if the chosen server proves to be more powerful than it is necessary or even give up the dedicated server if you don't need it. You must consider the fact that moving data from one server to another implies a few hours of work for a system administrator, therefore it is not recommended for you, because of the costs, to perform this operation frequently.

Service limitations on shared hardware

Web hosting or VPS-es are services running in a shared medium, which means that on the server also run the services of other clients. These provide a great number of facilities, software included and management at a reduced price, but with certain limitations and inconvenience presented above.

Dedicated server management services

The dedicated servers are "unmanaged", namely they don't include system management services. For the use of a dedicated server, a person or a company is needed to take care of the server management. The server management implies software installation, data migration, monitoring, securing and enduring a smooth running of the server.

Management option - 120€ / month / dedicated server

Optionally, you can purchase the dedicated server management package, which includes:

  • cPanel/WHM license for 100 cPanel accounts
  • R1Soft backup agent license
  • 100GB backup storage space, backup setup, regular check of the backup. The additional backup space costs 5€ / 50GB.
  • Performance audit, optimization implementation at server level and optimization recommendations for developers, at site level
  • The initial cPanel-cPanel migration of up to 20 websites, maximum 200GB of data. For the migration from other systems than the cPanel system, a higher number of websites or a higher data volume, we will assess and work up an offer for each individual situation.
  • Automatic monitoring of the website operation. For a single website, a HTTP request is done every minute towards a relevant page and if it is not functional or if it responds too slowly our team is alerted
  • Automatic monitoring of the server's smooth running (service operation, drive condition, available space on the drive, available memory, server loading – CPU and drive operations etc.)
  • Anti-malware and anti-virus daily scanning
  • 24/7 technical support by phone and email. Support is provided for site setup and installation and for site-related troubleshooting.
  • Configuration and support for the DNS settings of the domains hosted
  • Firewall configuration for detecting and blocking automatically „brute force” attacks
  • Security_mode rule configuration for blocking XSS penetration attempts and SQL injection.
  • Software updates

What does the backup service include?

Within the management service, we provide the regular configuration and verification of the backup copies (through monthly test restorations). Backup is performed with the R1Soft software, which allows us to make sure that the production server's performance is not affected when data transfer is carried out towards the backup server.

The backup copies are stored in a different data center (usually, hundreds of km away or more) in order to avoid affecting them in case of disasters (earthquakes, fires, flooding etc.)

Our standard backup policy is to perform a daily backup and to keep daily backup copies of the last 30 days plus monthly backup copies of the last 12 months. This policy can be adapted upon request, according to the needs of every individual client and with no additional cost, except for the storage space cost.

The cost of the additional storage space for the backup copies is 5€ for each additional 50GB (100GB storage on the backup server are included in the management package).

Data restoration from the backup, upon request, is done with no cost.

Extra options for the dedicated server

  • An IPv4 address: 2 € / month
  • cPanel/WHM license for 100 cPanel accounts: 50€ / month (included if the server management service is purchased)
  • R1Soft backup agent license (included with management): 13€ / month
  • storage space on R1Soft backup server from a different data center: 5€ / 50GB (100GB are included with the management package)
  • CloudLinux license: 12€ / month
  • BitNinja Pro license with unlimited number of websites: 20€ / month
  • dedicated server management - see above
