Dedicated Packages Description

When we talk about hosting servers, there are three principal kinds - hosting servers, VPS (virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated packages. Shared web hosting servers host a lot of clients and therefore the resources per hosting account are restricted, VPS offer more server configuration independence, but also affect other private virtual web hosting servers on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers give you the independence to do everything you choose without messing with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated servers?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a intense-traffic web portal, or just has very exact web server architecture requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is not an issue. You are bestowed with full root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware configurations

The majority of website hosting vendors, including us at AX Cloud, offer several hardware architectures you can choose from according to your necessities. The hardware configurations include different kinds of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth allowances. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is a useful GUI if you wish to utilize the dedicated servers for website hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting Control Panel of your choice

If you are a self-assured Linux OS user (our dedicated hosting web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated servers through an SSH connection only. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you want to grant complete root access to someone else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting CP user interface that we provide does not include complete root access and is chiefly suitable for someone who owns lots of web sites that absorb lots of system resources, but would rather manage the web pages, databases and mailbox aliases using a user-friendly Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full root-level access and have three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans instead of utilizing the dedicated servers just for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the issue of monitoring the dedicated servers and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your dedicated web hosting server, such as a non-responsive Apache or a network downtime, it is good to have some kind of monitoring platform enabled. Here at AX Cloud the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated servers as well. Backups are also an extra feature - the company offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would allow you to save the same data on two hard disks as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges erases something unintentionally.
