Dedicated Servers Hosting Clarified

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular website hosting products on the market. They are OK for small-scale sites that do not request lots of resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for resource-swallowing web portals with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you demand a reliable, leading-edge shared hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated server is your best alternative.

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

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease a whole web hosting server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a certain speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to handle intense load and given software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be visible on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the host, or by the client, on the basis of the specific dedicated server package. In either situation, the side managing the web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any given moment. Management is done through a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that enables you to keep track of the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting companies offer dedicated servers utilizing one particular OS, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the hosting provider offers and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms required to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web site files and take the website online. The majority of hosting service providers provide full server root privileges, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and modify any settings. Specific script-driven platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Many e-commerce software scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and being bestowed with root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for establishing an online shop. Other hosting companies do not give root privileges, but help the client activate the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full root-level access.
