When we speak of web hosting servers, there are three main varieties - shared website hosting web servers, VPS (private virtual hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers accommodate multiple clients and therefore the system resources per hosting account are limited, VPS packages give you more configuration liberty, but also affect other Virtual Private Servers on the hardware node if used unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the chance to do everything you choose without meddling with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared servers or Virtual Private Servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a frequently visited web portal, or simply has very explicit web server architecture requirements, the most appropriate option is a dedicated server. For someone who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your online portals.

Hardware specs

Most hosting distributors, incl. us at JaxHost Website Hosting, offer several different hardware architectures you can select from based on your demands. The hardware configurations offer different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard drive sizes and different monthly traffic usage quotas. You can choose a Control Panel, which is a useful user interface if you would like to use the hosting server for web hosting purposes solely and prefer not to resort to a Secure Shell terminal for all the modifications you will be making. We offer 3 types of web hosting CP software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your preference

If you are a self-confident Linux OS user (our hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through a Secure Shell client exclusively. That, though, could be inconvenient, particularly if you choose to give root access to somebody else who has less technical experience than yourself. That is why having web hosting Control Panel software pre-activated is a fine idea. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel software tool that we provide does not include complete root access and is mainly appropriate for someone who maintains many online portals that swallow plenty of resources, but prefers to manage the sites, databases and mailbox accounts using an intuitive Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, grant complete server root access and include three access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting packages instead of using the web server only for yourself, you should pick 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 the event of a problem with your web hosting server, like an unresponsive Apache or a network downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at JaxHost Website Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the individual services on the dedicated server as well. Backups are also an extra option - the hosting provider 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 server hard drives as a precaution in the event of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root-level access erases something accidentally.
