Dedicated Servers Description

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most commonly used web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-size web sites that do not need lots of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for high resource-absorbing web sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you demand a dependable, topflight web hosting platform that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated web hosting is your most suitable alternative.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent an entire web hosting server whose resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a certain speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A server is actually a computer with hardware meant to cope with heavy load and some software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites hosted on it to be visible online.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, based on the concrete dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the party managing the physical machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any given time. Management is carried out via a hosting Control Panel GUI that allows you to supervise the services running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting firms provide dedicated web hosting using one specific OS, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the hosting firm offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software required in order to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your files and get the web site online. Most hosting service providers offer full root privileges, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and change any settings. Some script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Different e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and receiving full server root access to the dedicated server is decisive for kicking off an online storefront. Other hosting service providers do not grant full root access, but help the client activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full root privileges.
