What Does Dedicated Hosting Represent?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread website hosting products on the market. They are perfect for small-scale web sites that do not require a lot of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for large sites with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced solution is needed. If you are looking for a steady, first-rate hosting solution that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

Tackle the Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent an entire physical server whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a certain speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with high load and specific software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the sites stored on it to be accessible on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting provider, or by the customer, based on the concrete dedicated server plan. In either case, the party handling the machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is done via a CP GUI that enables you to keep an eye on the processes running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Given hosts offer dedicated servers running one particular Operating System, while others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites necessitate a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another OS, while PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Prior to renting a dedicated server, learn what the hosting service provider offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software needed to manage a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the hosting server, you can upload your website files and get the website online. The majority of hosting vendors grant complete root access, in other words you can install any software applications on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Some script-powered software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and being bestowed with full root access to the dedicated server is crucial for launching an online storefront. Other web hosting firms do not give full server root privileges, but help the client activate the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes full server root privileges.

The content on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) tunnel or through a Control Panel interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel interfaces in existence, and usually hosting firms provide a few of them, and with complete server root access at hand, the customer can install any of them. All web files, databases, email mailbox accounts, access logs and program installations are managed easily via a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Certain web hosting Control Panels also have a reseller back office panel, so if you pick a dedicated server, you can not simply host your website files, but also offer shared website hosting plans to other users to generate money.
