Dedicated web hosting

The most radical of all web space hosting options, the dedicated servers provided by HD Web Hosting supply various web hosting Control Panel options: (a) Hepsia (with the Debian Linux OS exclusively; fee-free; unlimited hosted domains; one single account login; no root access; our first recommendation thanks to the presence of the cutting-edge Domain Manager – not present by default in any other web space hosting CP on the entire market); (b) DirectAdmin (free of charge); (c) cPanel (a monthly fee involved). Both DirectAdmin and cPanel sustain CentOS only; unlimited hosted domains; demand a second login for domain, billing transaction and client support ticket management activities; dedicated server root privileges. All dedicated web servers are available exclusively in the American data center facility.

Control Panel 1 - The Hepsia Control Panel is a normal tool only in combination with the Debian Linux Operating System and is included at no cost. With Hepsia you can host unmetered web site names in a single user account. This is achievable thanks to Hepsia's powerful Domain Manager platform. The other Control Panel platforms, i.e. cPanel and DirectAdmin, are offered only with CentOS. As opposed to Hepsia, with them you must have TWO autonomous hosting user accounts. This is so, because of the fact that cPanel and DirectAdmin do not offer any domain name registration/transfer/management functionalities. If you choose Ubuntu as an OS for your dedicated hosting server, there will be no Control Panel opportunity.

Hosted Domains 2 - unlimited domains can be hosted with all offered Control Panel setups, but only with Hepsia you can register/transfer/administer your website names under one account. Sadly, the cPanel/DirectAdmin hosting CP setups do not provide such feature at all - there is no Domain Manager menu and hence they call for 2 different hosting user accounts: one domain management/billing/support user account and one web site administration user account (i.e. the actual cPanel/DirectAdmin hosting CP).

OS (Operating System) 3 - you will observe that the Hepsia web hosting CP can work with Debian Linux only. It's free of cost to have it on your dedicated hosting server. Hepsia is not available with CentOS or Ubuntu. The cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel tools are available solely with the CentOS OS. Neither of them is offered with Debian or Ubuntu.

Root Access Availability 4 - unavailable solely with the Hepsia Control Panel and offered in all other instances.
