Dedicated Hosting Servers Defined

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous web hosting products on the marketplace. They are okay for small websites that do not demand lots of system resources and do not draw that many viewers, but for big web portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you demand a powerful, avant-garde shared hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest alternative.

Handle the High Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web hosting service, you lease a whole hosting server whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just as any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units functioning at a specific speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to tackle intense load and given software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the websites accommodated on it to be reachable online.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting provider, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side managing the machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular moment. Management is done through a web hosting Control Panel GUI that permits you to supervise the services running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting vendors provide dedicated hosting running one given OS, while others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, check what the web hosting vendor offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software applications required in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your website files and bring the site online. The majority of hosts provide complete root-level access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Particular script-based platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Various e-commerce scripts, for example, involve such a requirement, and gaining root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is key for managing a web store. Other web hosting corporations do not grant full root privileges, but help the client activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers full root access.
