Dedicated Hosting Explained

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widely used web hosting products on the marketplace. They are suitable for small-size sites that do not need plenty of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for heavy resource-consuming sites with many 1000's of visitors, a more powerful solution is required. If you would like to have a powerful, no-holds-barred shared hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease an entire web hosting server whose resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units operating at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to handle heavy load and specific software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the sites stored on it to be accessible on the web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the provider, or by the customer, based on the specific dedicated server package. In either situation, the side handling the web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out via a CP graphical user interface that allows you to supervise the processes running on the dedicated web server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various web hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting service providers offer dedicated servers utilizing one particular Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, check what the hosting provider offers and what the needs of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software apps required to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the web site online. The majority of hosting firms offer full root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Given script-powered software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Different e-commerce software scripts, for example, involve such a requirement, and receiving complete root-level access to the dedicated server is key for running a web store. Other hosting suppliers do not grant full server root privileges, but help the client activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes full root-level access.
