What In Fact are Dedicated Hosting Servers?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread web hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-size sites that do not require a lot of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for resource-swallowing sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you want a steady, first-class shared hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your best alternative.

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

With the dedicated hosting solution, you rent an entire hosting server whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units functioning at a given speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration meant to tackle high load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be accessible on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting company, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated hosting package. In either case, the party managing the web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is done via a hosting CP GUI that enables you to supervise the processes running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting providers offer dedicated hosting using one specific Operating System, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on a different OS, while PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the web hosting distributor provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software required in order to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web files and take the web site online. Most web hosting service providers give complete root-level access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Particular script-powered platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and being provided with root access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for running an online store. Other hosting corporations do not provide root access, but help the client activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes root privileges.
