What Exactly is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widely used website hosting products on the market. They are perfect for small-sized websites that do not demand plenty of resources and do not have that many viewers, but for huge web portals with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you desire a robust, first-rate shared hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your finest choice.

Handle the High Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease a whole web hosting server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units functioning at a given speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A server is indeed a computer with hardware aimed to tackle intense load and some software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the web sites accommodated on it to be available on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting firm, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated server package. In either case, the side handling the web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is done through a Control Panel graphical interface that permits you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting service providers offer dedicated servers using one specific OS, whereas others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on another OS, while PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, find out what the web hosting firm offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software applications needed in order to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your files and take the web site online. The majority of web hosting distributors provide root-level access, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Given script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Lots of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and being provided with root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for having an online storefront. Other web hosting distributors do not provide root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full root privileges.
