Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Unmasked
When we talk about web hosting servers, there are three basic types - shared web hosting servers, VPS (private virtual servers) and dedicated server web hosting. Shared servers host numerous clients and so the system resources per account are restricted, VPS web hosting offer more configuration autonomy, but also affect other virtual servers on the hardware node if utilized rashly, and dedicated web hosting servers offer you the opportunity to do everything you desire without messing with anyone else.
Why would you require a dedicated web hosting servers?
Dedicated web hosting servers are commonly much more expensive than shared hosting web servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-devouring web site, or simply has very exact server architecture requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated web hosting servers. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are bestowed with full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web pages.
Most web hosting service providers, incl. us at Axnhost.com, offer different hardware configurations you can pick from in consonance with your necessities. The configurations offer different varieties of microprocessors, a different amount of cores, different RAM memory and server hard disk drive sizes and different monthly bandwidth quotas. You can pick a web hosting CP, which is convenient software if you want to use the dedicated web hosting servers for web hosting purposes only and prefer not to resort to an SSH console for all the modifications you will be making. We provide 3 kinds of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.
The hosting CP of your choice
If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our servers are running on Linux or other Unix-based Operating Systems), you could administer your dedicated server web hosting via an SSH console only. That, however, could be inconvenient, even more so if you choose to grant access to somebody else who has less technical proficiency than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is an excellent idea. The Hepsia Control Panel graphical user interface that we provide does not give you root access and is mostly suitable for someone who has lots of web portals that require a lot of system resources, but would like to manage the web sites, databases and email box accounts through an easy-to-use hosting CP. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full server root privileges and include 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting plans instead of using the dedicated web hosting servers only 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 problem with your server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at Axnhost.com 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 additional option - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would allow you to store the very same data on 2 hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a server disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given full server root privileges deletes something by accident.
