What Does Dedicated Hosting Signify?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most extensively used website hosting solutions on the market. They are appropriate for small websites that do not demand plenty of system resources and do not have that many website visitors, but for resource-consuming web pages with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you demand a reliable, avant-garde hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most excellent option.

Handle the Heavy Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease a whole server whose system resources will be used only by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs operating at a given speed, a certain amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to handle intense load and certain software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites accommodated on it to be accessible online.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated server package. In either situation, the party managing the physical machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular moment. Management is carried out via a hosting CP interface that enables you to keep an eye on the processes running on the web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting providers provide dedicated servers using one specific Operating System, while others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, learn what the web hosting corporation offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software platforms needed in order to manage a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. Most web hosts provide full root privileges, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Certain script-powered platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and being given root access to the dedicated server is critical for managing an online storefront. Other web hosting providers do not provide full server root privileges, but help the client install the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes full root privileges.
