A dedicated server is a physical server in a data center that is exclusively dedicated to one customer. They are mainly used to 'host' large, high-traffic websites, web applications, and other services where performance is paramount — such as machine learning and virtualization.
Hosting control panels offer various tools like managing server accounts, DNS management, SSL certificates management, backups, etc. CloudPanel, hPanel, DirectAdmin, Webmin, Ispmanager, Plesk, and cPanel, are some of the popular hosting control panels.
Website and email hosting are two separate services and can run independently of one another. You can set up a website without an email host and, vice versa, you can use an email host if you don't have a website, too.
Certainly, you can upgrade your web hosting plan. The process will vary depending on your current web hosting provider. In the Upgrade menu, you will be ready to choose the hosting plan best suited for your needs and choose the billing cycle that suits your preference.
Do you need to install an SSL certificate on your server? SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates are how websites and services earn validation for the encryption of the data sent between them and their clients. This encryption is needed to secure websites that transmit private data, such as credit card information, passwords, names, and addresses.
Server backups are generated once a week for all VPS packages regardless of the management type. Please note that such backups are over-written by newly created ones and made for server restoration purposes only.
