What is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread website hosting products on the marketplace. They are OK for small-size web sites that do not request lots of system resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for resource-absorbing web sites with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you desire a steady, avant-garde shared hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated server is your best option.

Tackle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting service, you lease an entire web server whose system resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs functioning at a given speed, a certain amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A web hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration meant to cope with heavy load and given software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the websites stored on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting distributor, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated server plan. In either situation, the party managing the server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any moment. Administration is done through a web hosting CP GUI that enables you to check the processes running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Specific providers provide dedicated servers using one particular Operating System, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, examine what the provider offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps required in order to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your website files and get the site online. Most hosting suppliers give complete root-level access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Some script-driven software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and being bestowed with root access to the dedicated server is crucial for establishing an online storefront. Other hosting suppliers do not provide root access, but help the customer activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with full root access.
