Dedicated web hosting

The most significant of all web site hosting solutions, the dedicated servers furnished by Hardball Hosting incorporate different website hosting CP choices: (a) Hepsia (with the Debian Linux OS exclusively; fee-free; unlimited hosted top level domain names; a single hosting account login; no dedicated server root access; our topmost recommendation based on the availability of the state-of-the-art Domain Manager – not added by default in any other web space hosting Control Panel in the entire marketplace); (b) DirectAdmin (for free); (c) cPanel (a monthly cost involved). Both DirectAdmin and cPanel sustain CentOS only; unlimited hosted Top Level Domains; demand an additional account login for domain, invoice transaction and client support ticket handling procedures; complete root-level access. All dedicated hosting severs are available only in the United States datacenter.

Web Service Uptime

Control Panel 1 - The Hepsia Control Panel is a regular tool solely in combination with the Debian Linux Operating System and is offered as a gift. With Hepsia you can host unmetered TLDs in one single hosting user account. This is possible due to Hepsia's efficient Domain Manager tool. The other Control Panel setups, i.e. cPanel and DirectAdmin, are attainable only in combination with CentOS. In contrast with Hepsia, with them you must use 2 different logins. This is so, because of the fact that cPanel and DirectAdmin do not deliver any domain name registration/transfer/administration choices. If you select Ubuntu as an OS for your dedicated web server, there will be no web hosting CP option.

Hosted Domains 2 - unlimited domain names can be hosted with all available Control Panel interfaces, but only with Hepsia you can register/transfer/manage your domain names under a single hosting account. Unluckily, the cPanel/DirectAdmin hosting CP platforms do not supply such possibility at all - there is no Domain Manager tool and therefore they call for TWO separate web hosting user accounts: 1 domain name management/billing/support account and 1 website management user account (i.e. the actual cPanel/DirectAdmin hosting CP).

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

Dedicated Server Root Privileges 4 - unavailable solely with the Hepsia CP and offered in all other circumstances.
