Dedicated Hosting Servers Unveiled

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most famous web hosting solutions on the market. They are okay for small-sized web portals that do not need a lot of system resources and do not have that many web site visitors, but for content-heavy sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful solution is needed. If you desire an advanced, no-holds-barred shared hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate choice.

Handle the Heavy Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you rent a whole web server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors running at a certain speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to cope with heavy load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the web sites hosted on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, depending on the specific dedicated hosting plan. In either situation, the party managing the physical server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given moment. Administration is done via a web hosting Control Panel GUI that allows you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting vendors offer dedicated hosting running one given OS, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows server, for example, and will not work on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the hosting corporation offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software apps needed to administer a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. Most web hosting suppliers give root access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Certain script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. Different shopping cart software scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and being granted complete root access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for developing an online shop. Other web hosting corporations do not offer complete root access, but help the customer install the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root-level access.
