Definition of Dedicated Server Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widely used web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small-scale websites that do not demand a lot of resources and do not get that many visitors, but for high resource-demanding online portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you would like to have an advanced, top-quality shared hosting platform that can cope with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your perfect option.

Handle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease a whole physical machine whose system resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more central processing units operating at a certain speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to handle intense load and given software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting distributor, or by the client, based on the concrete dedicated server plan. In either instance, the party managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any moment. Administration is carried out via a hosting CP GUI that allows you to monitor the services running on the server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting service providers provide dedicated servers using one particular OS, while others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, discover what the hosting distributor provides and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software apps needed in order to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your web files and bring the site online. The majority of hosting firms offer full server root access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and modify any settings. Given script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Many shopping cart software scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and being given complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is decisive for launching a web store. Other web hosting companies do not offer root privileges, but help the customer install the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with full root-level access.
