The Importance of Data Storage and Backup on Server
Companies providing server services can optionally provide backup services for many documents hosted by their customers, files belonging to the site used, databases and other files. Data storage and backup services, which vary according to the selected service type, provide a great advantage in data recovery in a possible situation. Along with the backup service we offer to our customers as LimonHost, your backups are taken at night or in the periods you want and delivered to you. We can classify these data storage and backup services that we provide to our customers in several groups in order of importance.
Plesk Panel or cPanel?
If your website is written in PHP, you have to use cPanel, if it is written in ASP.NET, you have to use Plesk panel. You can also host websites written in PHP on Windows servers, but you cannot host websites written in ASP.NET in cPanel. cPanel is better than plesk panel in terms of speed and performance. In terms of price, Plesk panel is much more affordable than cPanel. In terms of interface, using cPanel is easier than using Plesk panel, but this may vary from user to user.
What is a Virtual Server and What Does It Do?
Virtual Private Server or the abbreviation VPS; virtual servers are one of the most preferred hosting services for websites. Thanks to the virtualization technology in virtual servers, it is possible to use resources privately on a server with more than one user. VPSs are preferred because they are cheaper than dedicated servers and because they are more secure and more efficient than shared servers. It is also possible to access the root of the server with the VPS. In this way, applications can be installed and environment changes can be made. Since there is no root access on shared servers, such changes are made by the hosting company.
Purchase Dedicated Server
Dedicated server means a server that is leased to only one user. For this reason, dedicated servers are more expensive than other server options, but they have some advantages. Dedicated servers are ideal options, especially for applications that need more resources and high-traffic websites. It is also indispensable for medium-sized processing. When you receive such a service, the hosting company allocates a single server only to you and there is no other website on this server. In this way, all the resources and all the speed of the server are dedicated to your site only
Advantages of Renting a Server
Purchasing a server for a business has become an expensive and unnecessary choice nowadays. The main reason for this situation is that it is a difficult process to find and buy the right server for the business. For this reason, choosing the rental method instead of buying a server helps both to reduce the workload and to decide what kind of server is needed. Moreover, server rental is much less costly. Changing the server when more processor, storage or bandwidth is needed takes time and incurs extra costs. However, performance improvement is a few minutes' process in companies that provide server services. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages and this differs according to the need.
Hosting Control Panels
Whether it is shared hosting, VPS or dedicated server, the choice of control panel to be used for management is limited. Today, there are 3 main panels: cPanel, Directadmin and Plesk.
The control panel provides the management of the server without using any command line or any other technical infrastructure. Through the panel, it is possible to add new users, add databases, view error logs, install popular software, set up e-mail, take backups and hundreds of other operations. The functions of the control panel for the web server are innumerable, and therefore server management is unthinkable without the control panel today.
One of the difficulties experienced when choosing a control panel is the difficulty of moving between panels. Changing the control panel in case of a change of mind in the future can be a difficult process especially for first timers. Therefore, knowing the differences, advantages and disadvantages of control panels in advance provides an advantage in the selection process.
