When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three basic varieties - shared web hosting web servers, VPS (virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of clients and therefore the system resources per web hosting account are limited, VPS packages give you more configuration freedom, but also influence other virtual hosting servers on the hardware node if used heedlessly, and dedicated servers give you the chance to perform everything you decide without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are normally much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual hosting servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is very simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing web portal, or just has very explicit server architecture requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated server. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no importance. You are granted full root-level access and can use 100% of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web portals.

Hardware configurations

Most hosting providers, incl. us at AX Cloud, provide different hardware configurations you can select from depending on your demands. The hardware configurations include different sorts of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk sizes and different traffic usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a handy interface if you want to use the dedicated server for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 sorts of hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our web servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated server via a Secure Shell terminal exclusively. That, though, could be awkward, particularly if you wish to grant full root-level access to somebody else who has less technical skills than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software activated is a good idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel interface that we offer does not include complete root access and is mostly appropriate for someone who owns numerous web sites that absorb lots of resources, but desires to administer the websites, databases and mailbox accounts via a user-friendly web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root-level access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting packages rather than using the dedicated hosting web server just for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some kind of monitoring system 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 server too. Backups are also an additional option - the web hosting distributor offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to keep the same data on 2 disk drives as a precaution in case of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given root access erases something by mistake.
