What Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Represent?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most popular web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are good for small web sites that do not demand a lot of system resources and do not receive that many web site visitors, but for high resource-consuming sites with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you are searching for an advanced, first-rate web hosting platform that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate option.

Tackle the High Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server hosting service, you rent an entire physical server whose resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a specific speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated web hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware aimed to cope with intense load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites stored on it to be visible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting supplier, or by the client, based on the particular dedicated hosting plan. In either case, the side managing the dedicated server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular time. Management is done through a CP tool that permits you to supervise the processes running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting suppliers offer dedicated hosting running one given Operating System, while others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, check what the host offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software applications required to run 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 web hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the web site online. Most web hosting distributors give complete root-level access, in other words you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Specific script-driven platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Many shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and being offered full root access to the dedicated hosting server is decisive for making an online shop. Other web hosting distributors do not give complete root-level access, but help the client install the needed software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers full server root privileges.
