What Actually are Dedicated Servers?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-size online portals that do not request lots of resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-absorbing websites with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful platform is required. If you would like to have a reliable, leading-edge web hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated web hosting is your most excellent alternative.

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

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire physical server whose system resources will be used only by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units functioning at a particular speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware designed to tackle high load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the sites accommodated on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the party handling the web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is done via a hosting CP user interface that permits you to monitor the services running on the machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Given hosting providers offer dedicated web hosting running one particular OS, whereas others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not operate on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will function on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, discover what the provider offers and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms needed in order to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the web site online. The majority of hosting companies offer root-level access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and change any settings. Certain script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and being supplied with full root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for establishing an online shop. Other hosts do not give complete root-level access, but help the client install the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with full root privileges.
