When we speak of hosting servers, there are three basic categories - website hosting servers, VPS (virtual private web hosting servers) and dedicated web hosting. Shared web servers accommodate plenty of clients and thus the resources per account are limited, VPS web hosting offer more server configuration autonomy, but also influence other virtual private web servers on the hardware node if utilized heedlessly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the independence to do everything you want without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?

Dedicated web hosting servers are traditionally much more expensive than shared web servers or virtual servers. Why would anyone, then, use them? The explanation is rather simple. If your firm has a content-heavy web portal, or simply has very specific server configuration requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You obtain full server root privileges and can use 100% of the physical server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your web portals.

Hardware architectures

Most website hosting service providers, incl. us at AX Cloud, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from in accordance with your requirements. The hardware configurations include different types of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and hard drive sizes and different traffic allowances. You can choose a hosting CP, which is a convenient graphical user interface if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to use a Secure Shell console for all the modifications you will be making. We offer three sorts of web hosting Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choice

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could manage your dedicated web hosting via a Secure Shell tunnel exclusively. That, however, could be inconvenient, particularly if you decide to grant root-level access to somebody else who has less technical abilities than yourself. That is why having web hosting CP software installed is a splendid idea. The Hepsia Control Panel tool that we offer does not offer full root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who has lots of online portals that devour a lot of resources, but would like to administer the online portals, databases and email box accounts through an intuitive web hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you full server root access and have 3 levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you intend to resell hosting plans rather than using the dedicated web hosting servers solely for yourself, you should select one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

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