When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 principal sorts - shared website hosting servers, VPS (virtual servers) and dedicated hosting servers. Shared web hosting servers host lots of customers and therefore the resources per web hosting account are limited, virtual private server plans give you more server configuration freedom, but also affect other virtual web servers on the hardware node if used rashly, and dedicated servers give you the opportunity to carry out everything you decide without messing with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated hosting server?

Dedicated servers are commonly much more expensive than shared web hosting servers or virtual web servers. Why would anyone, then, want to use them? The answer is pretty simple. If your corporation has a high resource-absorbing web page, or just has very explicit web server configuration requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated server. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You get full server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and intervening with your web sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of shared hosting suppliers, incl. us at JaxHost, offer several hardware configurations you can select from as per your requirements. The hardware architectures offer different sorts of processors, a different number of cores, different RAM and hard disk drive sizes and different web traffic quotas. You can select a hosting Control Panel, which is a useful tool if you would like to use the dedicated web hosting server for website hosting purposes only and prefer not to use an SSH terminal for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 types of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The Control Panel of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux OS user (our web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could manage your dedicated server via an SSH console only. That, though, could be awkward, especially if you wish to give full root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. This is why having web hosting CP software pre-installed is a great idea. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel software that we provide does not offer full root-level access and is mostly appropriate for someone who runs plenty of websites that swallow lots of system resources, but prefers to administer the websites, databases and mailbox accounts using an easy-to-use Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting Control Panels, on the other hand, give you root access and offer 3 access levels - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell web hosting accounts instead of using the web server solely for yourself, you should choose one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup services

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated hosting server and of backing it up. In the event of a problem with your dedicated hosting web server, such as an unresponsive Apache or a downtime, it is desirable to have some sort of monitoring platform enabled. Here at JaxHost the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you have a Managed Services package, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated hosting server too. Backups are also an extra feature - the hosting provider offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a kind of RAID that would permit you to store the very same data on two server hard disk drives as a precaution in the event of a hard disk failure, or in case someone whom you have given complete root access erases something by mistake.
