Why choose a Dedicated Server?

Watch the video to learn more.

Perhaps you were wondering...?

LuxSci dedicated servers are virtual machines running 64-bit CentOS Linux. Windows-based virtual servers are not available.

LuxSci dedicated servers can be used for email hosting (with access via WebMail, POP, IMAP, SMTP, and ActiveSync), web hosting and MySQL database hosting, email marketing, SecureForm processing, dedicated inbound email filtering, and dedicated WebMail.

By default, LuxSci is currently installing CentOS 6, Apache 2.4, MySQL v5.5, and PHP v5.6 on new dedicated servers.

Dedicated servers can be HIPAA compliant. In addition to signing a BAA with you, LuxSci:

There are many ways to access and interact with your data on your dedicated server:

  • Email access is available via WebMail, POP, IMAP, SMTP, and optionally ActiveSync.
  • File system access is available via SFTP and our web-based FileManager.
  • Shell access via SSH is available upon request; however, root-level access is not available to customers.
  • MySQL access is available directly from applications running on the server, from our Web-based database manager tool, and remotely over stunnel- or VPN-secured connections.

LuxSci automatically backs up the data on dedicated server for you. We make 7 daily snapshots kept in the same data center and 4 weekly snapshots kept in a geographically remote data center. We can restore individual files to the whole server from these backups, if necessary.

LuxSci can provide custom backup schedules and retention periods if required. There may be an additional fee for custom backups.

Upgrades are simple. In many cases we can upgrade your server quickly and without any special upgrade fee.

Downgrading is a little more complex as we cannot use an image from a larger server to make a smaller server. For downgrades, we setup a new server and then migrate your account data to the new machine. There is a new server setup fee and a $100 migration fee for this process.

Both upgrades and downgrades can require some down time (30-60 minutes, or more, depending on exactly how much data is being moved) during the migration and will change your IP address.

Yes, you can have cron jobs. These will be enabled for your by LuxSci technical support.
